Approval decision policy (Dear)

Approval decision policy (Dear)

If you have the same Approvers in several steps of an approval workflow, you can decide whether they all have to approve in each and every one of the steps, or if the approval decision made in the first step is to be applied to all other steps too.

This is how it can be set up:

  1. Go to the main menu  in the upper left-hand corner and select your Organisation. Then, open the Approval Workflows page in the Workflows and Settings section:


  2. Select the respective workflow and click on the gear icon:


  3. Scroll down and select your preferred option:

    The setting "All steps at once" applies the first approval decision automatically to all steps – if the Approver has been selected for several steps and is the first to approve.
  4. When done, save your changes and update the approval workflow.
