large workflow for approvals - can it be done in a single workflow?

I need to build a workflow that technically has multiple triggers (I think). I am trying to create an approval process, but we have a 36 different initial approvals (varied by location) and then a following 8 by region before the final approval in finance. Is this even possible in a single workflow?

    Hey @Aubree Brett

    I agree that it would be helpful to know more details about your process.

    Do you mean that you have 38 different people who may be the 1 approver, or 38 separate approvals that need to happen each time?

    Is it a 3-step approval process (38 options - 8 options - finance)? If so, I would personally do three separate workflows, making sure that I had fully separate columns and values per workflow so they don't get triggered multiple times.
