Approval decision policy (Stand-alone workflows)

Approval decision policy (Stand-alone workflows)

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 navigate to your Organisation. Then, open the "Approval workflows" page:


  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.
