Resending Approval

I have tried everything, watched and read so many options.  I have an Approval with Condition to update SharePoint and send an email to another person.  All works great.  I need to know how to Resend the Approval in 21 days, if the approver does not reply to the 1st one.  Any work arounds?  (I have tried Do Until and Delay and TimeOut the 1st Approval with a 2nd Approval:  All of this stops my Flow from working.)

Re: Resending Approval

You can't resend that exact approval.  You can send either another approval or an email with a link to the original approval fairly easily.  The key is to use the timeout setting on the Wait for Approval action in the Flow. If the request comes back before the wait times out then proceed with the Flow.  If not, then have an action that sends either a new approval or an email with a link to the existing approval. Here's an example.screenshot.png

  1. In the Wait for Approval settings set the timeout to 'P27D' 
  2. set the run after settings for the Approval times out to run if the previous action times out.
  3. Set any followon actions, like update file properties to run if the previous action is skipped or runs successfully
  4. Add whatever actions you want to happen within 27 days to the completes successfully scope and anythign to resend in the times out scope.
