I am trying to create a flow to send out a 'approval' to everyone put in the Assigned field in a SharePoint List.  This is for corporate policies to be signed off on.  I cannot get it to work correctly.  It works fine for 1 person in the assigned field.  If there is more then 1, it waits for the first person to approve, then sends to the next, then goes right back in a circle.

@ktmueller yes it will wait for each assigned to person to approve it because you've got the Start and Wait for an Approval inside the Apply to each control.

 

Your Case is incorrect: the outcome is either Approve or Reject.

@RobElliott   Which approval do i use then so it doesnt wait for each assigned person to approve.

@ktmueller you could use "First to respond" but overall I would try not to use the  Apply to each for this. I'll have a look at a solution for you.

Thankyou for your help on this.  i've been going round and round and i think ive done without the apply to each, i'm not sure at this point as ive tried many things. :)
