that is not the case, here is an example of a library I just created using a tutorial from edX and it has the workflow status. it was correctly updated by clicking on the button/link in an email message

I have the same problem. The approval flow is not very useful it it does not update Approval status and thus makes the document avaliable to users :( Solutions?

I have exactly the same problem, this seems like a small glitch that hopefully Microsoft can solve ASAP because i have clients waiting to use this process for their ISO 9001 compliance.

This has been an issue for 2 years or more. Unfortunately the "the start approval when new item is added" is useless.

Having the same issue. Also using library for ISO compliance. I cannot read the value in the Approval Status either which makes it much harder to send emails. Can someone from MS reply to when this basic functionality may be available in Flow?

Any updates on this issue?
Having the same issue, document library with "Required approval" turned on and major and Minor versions.
I need ONLY when a user Publish the document as Major approval that the flow will update the approval status accordingly.

I would recommend asking this question over in the "main" Flow Community at https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Microsoft-Flow-Community/ct-p/FlowCommunity that is where the product team and many Flow MVPs participate.
The fact that there are 2 communities is beyond annoying (:

Flow has a "Set Content Approval Status" which is responsible on the approve or reject "Approval Status"
the trick is to get the approval status of the Pending, this can be achieved only with API call, as for now FLOW doesn't have a built in function to do it.

So how can we now if the document is approved or rejected? Only by the email response?

Hi there @Tanya Denton...can you provide in some detail how you got this to work? I've been pulling my hair out trying to get the Approval Status flag to change depending on the response sent out from the Flow approval e-mail, and I can't seem to get it to work. I am using the 'Set content approval status' that @Michal Golan mentioned, but it doesn't seem to work.
What am I doing wrong?!?! :)
