Parallel Approvals

Hi - We have multiple approvers/approvals in our workflow and they are done one after another (serial). This means the 2nd and 3rd approvers must each wait for the prior approvals before notification and completion of the approval task themselves, causing delays completing the approval step in its entirety. Is there a way to setup approvals to run in parallel? How?

Appreciate any information or answers anyone can provide!

Hi Dan, I know how approvals work for Doc Control, and it may be similar for other apps. You could roll all approvers into one approval and use the option "All Approvals are Required". That would reduce the granularity of the approvals but would allow everyone to get on with their approvals. If the app you're using doesn't include this option it might be possible with configuration, so it's worth discussing with your CSM.
