  • So you will have to add a parallel action with two branches where first one requests approval and second one is waiting for the necessary time. The entire procedure should be looped till a collection variable removes all the approval required users.

  • I think we can solve this problem. Before that I need to know. Are you having a fixed amount of approvers or is it dynamic? 

    Did not you try parallel actions?

  • but how can we create a for each loop to iterate through all approvers one by one.

  • First you have to take all the approvers to a collection. Then check for item existance in the collection at the first step of the loop. Second step should be poping the element from the collection. Then this will be looped.
