multiple approval flow



I would need to set an approval flow with consecutive approvers (when Approver 1 approves, flows goes to Approver 2, and so on up to 11 Approvals), which I managed to set up. However I have scenarios when 1 approval level needs to be spiked (approver is also not filled in for those cases) and the flow would need to jump to the next level of approval. Can that be done ? ( there is no pattern when an approve needs to be spiked, the only trigger being that the cell is empty).

Thank you!

    Hi Melinda,

    Would it work to use Update Requests instead or does it have to be Approvals?

    One possible workaround that could work would be to add a note and that would trigger the the spike. (untested)

    Would that work?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic week!
