APPROVAL BASED WORKFLOWS
There are so many business processes where everything grinds to a halt as we wait for someone to provide their approval and before we can move to the next stage. Microsoft Flow is made to handle these situations, creating an easier way to receive and manage approvals.
Flow is a productivity service that can help streamline any approvals process for your business. Common examples include: annual leave requests, quote approvals, supplier invoice approvals, H&S policy updates and document approvals such as budgets, contracts or specifications. The possibilities are unlimited.
Approval workflows can use any combination of applications or services
that you currently use.
For example SharePoint, Dynamics CRM, MYOB, Salesforce, MailChimp … and there’s literally hundreds more

Real Life Example
Starting the Approval process
Approve a request
The goal of these new approval experiences is to make it easier for approvers to quickly process their approval requests regardless of the device they are using or where they are.
As an approver you can receive notifications about pending approvals on any device
regardless of where you are.
You’ll have the ability to approve and reject directly from the web, Mobile or directly from your inbox, enabling your team members to progress their work to the next stage.
When an approval request is assigned to you, you’ll receive a notification with corresponding title, work details and links within the Flow.
Here you have two options, Approve or Reject. Note the different paths created to automatically progress this request.
Flow can provide a concise and clear summary of any workflow status assisting the approver with prioritising and progressing pending tasks allowing team members to do the same. This can be done in the Flow approval centre via your desktop, Flow Mobile app (available on iOS, Android or Windows Mobile) or link within an email
