3. Condition 3
If you expect any 2 or 3 out of multiple approvers to approve, then follow these steps
- Create an approval rule with "Direct Approvers" option
- Create separate approval steps with the same approvers under "Direct Approvers" option and uncheck "All Approvals Required" option
- In the next approval steps, flag "Skip Reapproval" option, so that approval task will not go to the same person who has approved in the previous step
- You can set multiple approvers under "Direct Approvers" rule.
- "All Approvals Required" option should be set when you want all the approvers in the "Direct approver" list to approve the document, else uncheck this flag.
