Introduction to Approval ChainLast Updated: 12/05/2018 Introduced in Version: 2.0
Approval Chains are used to approve requests. System administrators choose which requests require approval, and by whom. This video will guide you through the customization of an Approval Chain.
Select the desired approval chain, right click, and select Edit Approval Chain. Alternatively, click on the approval chain that needs to be edited, locate the actions menu in the top-right corner of the screen, and select Edit Approval Chain from the list.
A name is required, however, the description is optional. Click the ellipses (…) across from Levels to customize the levels of approval that will be used when this approval chain is activated.
Unwanted groups or accounts can be removed from a level by clicking the “X” icon.
By typing into the field, a drop-down menu will appear listing any partial matches; click on a user or group to add it to the first level of approval. The drop-down menu to the left of the field provides options as to whom within the group needs to approve the request.
Level 1 has 1 group: only 1 of the accounts within that group must approve
Level 2 has 2 groups: only 1 of the accounts from each group must approve
Level 3 has 2 groups and 2 individual accounts: 1 account from each group and both individual accounts must approve
