Multiple Assigned To with Actions

With the new ability to put multiple names/users in an assigned to field is there a way of getting approvals from all of them.

I'd like to say, request approval from all names in the field and store each of the approvals in a column.

 

Thoughts?

    Hi Scott,

    At the moment it's not possible, but if i'm not mistaken, I think it will be available later this year. 

    A possible workaround that I've used for my clients is to make one Approval Request rule and then copy it and change the settings for the next approver. 

    You can send the approval to everyone or if you'd prefer, to approver 1 and when it's approved it gets forwarded to approver 2 and so on. 

    You can also choose to use one column but name the status like approved by 1, approved by 1, 2 and so on.

    Would that work for you?

    I hope this helps you!

    Best,
