Here's what I want to do. Use MS Teams and Flow to track Purchase Requisitions from Engineering through the approval process and finally after approved email a link from Teams files storage to Purchasing with appropriate approvals.
But Flow under Teams is really cranky, I was never able to set it up and get it to work for Approval/Sign-Off because it asks for Site Info, and Path names that, as hard as I tried, I could not get to work. SharePoint and Flow and me are good friends, I had no problem setting them up, and although you have to click on the"Run Flow" tab to get them to execute, I had no real problem. By default fields are appropriately populated with GUIDs, Site info etc.
And if I place files in Teams and then open with SharePoint no problem. Problem is share point gives the ability to approve using Teams, but does not update the column of "Sign-Off Status". If you use "Sign-Off" from SharePoint the "Sign-Off Status" column is updated. Also in Teams there is no way to display the "Sign-Off Status" column, in-fact there is no column chooser at all. What you get is what you get and that's it.
You ask why do I want to use Teams. Well in SharePoint you are forced to enter an email address for approval, and that is just too random. I want to assign who is/are the approval personnel for each Team, not leave it to the creator of the Purchase Requisition.
I really think Teams is going to be a good product, but it is in its infancy, and has a long way to go.
Is there a better way to automate sign-off on documents?
