Parallel and sequential approvals (stand-alone)

Parallel and sequential approvals (stand-alone)

ApprovalMax supports both parallel and sequential approvals for documents.
Set parallel approvals if you have several approvers in one step and need any or all of them to approve a document.
Set sequential approvals if you have approvers from different departments.

  • To set up parallel approvals, add several Approvers to the same step. All of them have to approve before the document moves on to the next step.

  • To set up sequential approvals, add Approvers in several steps. The document moves on to the next step (and next Approver) once the Approver in the previous step has approved.
