Single flow, run multiple instances.

For single user: When I start an approval, the approval is sent .

I have 100 users and i want this flow to run for all 100 users at once.

But how do I track multiple Users =>(approvals and Multiple responses).

There are only three connectors for approvals,
start and wait, start , wait.

 

Our Use case

I get data from Service now for a user

I have to start an approval for a user's Line manager.

He approves it

and email is sent.

I want this flow to run for every user that comes from service now.


Please Explain.

Re: Single flow, run multiple instances.

 

Hi @V1NAY81 ,

 

Here you first need to understand the basic mechanism of Flow. Although you are creating a single Flow, each execution of Flow is a separate instance and will not be affected.

So as long as Approver is dynamically changing, or if the parameters configured in Approval action are dynamically changed, then the current Approval request is created for the specified event.

 

Also if you want to record the results of each Approval request, please consider using SharePoint List to record Approval response.

You could try to configure your Flow by referring to the example below.

If you have any questions, please feel free to let us know.
