Step by Step Power Automate Approval tutorial video that covers how to build Approval flows for SharePoint lists, dynamically define flow approvers, keep track of Approval History, set item level permissions for SharePoint List Item & provide users the ability to re-submit (re-trigger) the approval process.

Keeping Item Permissions in mind when Building Power Automate Approval Workflows with SharePoint is Key!

Scenario in video is an Expense Report application in SharePoint where users log expense details & we have a Power Automate Approval Process that secures the SharePoint item under approval (read-only) while the approval process is on-going.

The approval technique showcased in video also works with SharePoint Document Libraries.
