Approval conditions (Stand-alone workflows)

Approval conditions (Stand-alone workflows)

In any approval step, there can be multiple Approvers. If this is the case, you can specify how such a request should be handled. 

For this, you can choose between two approval conditions: “All” and “Any of”. They determine how many of the Approvers are required to complete the step — either all or only one of the assigned Approvers. 

“All” is the default condition. When you add a new step, the approval condition will be set to “All”.

To change this, click on the drop-down symbol, select the relevant option and then click on "DONE" in the modal window. To apply the selected condition, you need to activate or update the workflow.

Please note: this setting affects only requests that have multiple Approvers assigned to a particular step.
