What is the "Watchers" functionality? (Stand-alone)

The "Watchers" functionality in ApprovalMax allows users to closely monitor and stay informed about specific approval requests within the system. When a user is assigned as a "Watcher" for a particular request, they will receive notifications and updates regarding the progress and status of the approvals, even if they are not directly involved in the approval process.

The Watchers functionality provides the following features:

1. Notifications: Watchers receive notifications via email when significant events occur within the request they are watching. This includes approvals or rejections, decision reworks, comments

2. Visibility: Watchers can track the progress of the approvals they are monitoring within the ApprovalMax. They can see the current status, comments made, and any other relevant information related to the request.

3. Observation: Although Watchers do not have active participation in the approvals, they can observe the document, ensuring transparency and accountability throughout the process.

The Watchers functionality aims to provide visibility and engagement for users who need to stay up-to-date on specific approval processes without the need for direct involvement.
