How to manage multiple concurrent approvals for one row
I need to get anywhere from 1 to 4 approvals for an attachment in one row. I want the request to go out simultaneously to all reviewers.
the Approval workflow seems to require consecutive approvals - not good for my use case.
I changed to using an update request. All approvers are added to one “assigned to” field and there are 4 blank response fields with drop downs. The update request contains all 4 fields and they are asked to put their response in a blank field. I use a formula to count up the responses until they are all in and then it sends me a notification that the approvals are complete.
this works ok until someone is late with their approval. The workflow sends a reminder to everyone in the Assigned To field, even if they have responded.
Any thoughts on how to better manage multiple concurrent approvals on one row?
