I have a Power Automate flow that triggers on a New Item, then Creates an Approval (2 custom responses - Approved/Rejected). I've got it all set up so far. the notification gets sent when an item is submitted in PowerApps (to SharePoint), and it allows the recipient to provide a response, reassign, add comments. BUT, how can I update the SharePoint list with that response? I have a Status column, and I want the Response (from Project manager) to then update that column. I know how to use the Update Item action, but I don't know where the Response is logged. When I add Update Item after Create an Approval, there isn't a clear option in the Dynamic Content for the Response. "Outcome" or "Response" aren't in the Dynamic Content, so does that mean I need to Initialize/Set a variable to capture the response? If so, how would that expression be? enter image description here

You have instructed to create an approval. If you need to return the outcome, you need to use Wait for an approval.
