Get approvals via automation when more then one

In some cases we might have more then one approval round in a single issue for the same status - i.e customer didnt approve the first window to run a change, but approves the second provided.

My use case is that we need to get the last and / or approved final decision on the issue, then copy this information to a linked issue - this is working with the first one with this smartvalue.

Then comment the linked issue as follows

Name: {{approver.displayName}}
Action: {{approverDecision}} \\


What happened was the exact scenario from above, and automation didn't take the second approval decision. 

How can I tune the advanced comparison to get the approved decision on this one? 

Any help is appreciated.

Hi @Patricia Francezi,

Approvals is a list type. If you always want to get the last approval then you should refer to it by:


This will give you the last approval in the list.



It worked. I tried this so many ways, but couldnt make it work. 
Thanks for your help
