Power Automate Approvals with F&O Workflows

  • 1.  Power Automate Approvals with F&O Workflows

    Posted 16 days ago

    I'm using the Power Automate approval template called Complete Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations workflow work items (PU29). I have a few questions about this template and wonder if anyone has suggestions. I didn't get a reply in the Power Automate forum, so I thought I would try here.

    • Scenario 1:  The user approves the workflow within F&O and not via the Power Automate email, which leaves the Power Automate flow in a running state. How can I update the Power Automate flow so that it periodically checks to see if the F&O workflow is still active, and if not, the Power Automate flow stops? Also, if the F&O workflow is still active after the check, how can I send reminder Power Automate emails?
    • Scenario 2:  The user approves the F&O workflow through the Power Automate email message and the user is shown wording that says the approval was successful.  In reality, the Power Automate flow has lost connection to F&O and the workflow did not actually get approved. Why does the flow lose connection?
