Can the second approval step be bypassed if the Approvers are the same ones?

By default, if the Approvers in the second step are the same ones as in the first step, it is still not possible to bypass the second step to save them from having to approve twice.
ApprovalMax will follow your workflow even if the responsible Approvers have already approved the request in a previous step.

However, this can be changed in the settings of the respective approval workflow:


Selection "All steps at once" automatically applies approval decision to all steps if the Approver is selected in several steps and approves in the first.
