does a flow get triggered when a record gets updated by an approval process in salesforce?

The flow (record triggered) should run when a check box is made true on update. It runs when the check box is checked manually on an update and saved. It also should run when the check box is checked by an approval process - but this doesn't seem to work.

If this is an issue, is there a work around?
Found out flows won't get triggered when an approval process updates a record. Solution - trigger the flow from a process builder. Also only auto launched flow can be triggered from a process builder, not a record triggered flow. So you will have to save as your flow, click advanced and change the flow type to Auto launched flow (No Trigger) and you will have to tweak the flow to pass any record ids required for the flow to proceed further.
