In this video we will walk through an end-to-end solution tracking Power Automate Approvals with SharePoint Lists using an approval workflow & SharePoint column formatting.
Using column formatting, we will showcase an Approval timeline which will include a progress / status indicator for showcasing the current state of the approval process related to the SharePoint list item + Approval history which includes all details of the approval action (approver name, approval date, time taken to respond, comments), highlight the current approvers & calculate the time the approval action is in pending state.
This can be handy in identifying where the approval process is taking more time. We will also define dynamic approvers based on metadata & log the approval history to SharePoint list item (best practice since flow approval history is only available for 28 days). Scenario in video is a help desk application in SharePoint where users log information which triggers the approval process.

I really enjoy your videos, they are a big help. I am having an issue with the custom card on my approval timeline. I am not showing any text after the process begins. I can see the No History Available when the item status is new but the box remains empty after this status is changed. Any help on this would be much appreciated.
