Parallel and sequential approvals in QuickBooks Online

ApprovalMax supports both parallel and sequential approvals for documents.
  1. Set up parallel approvals if you have several Approvers in one step and want either any or all of them to make an approval decision.
  2. Set up sequential approvals if you have Approvers from different departments.
