Auto Approve a Request for Approval
1) Does anyone know of a way to automatically approve a request for approval if a condition is met?
2) Can I record "Approved" in the approval column if it's automatically approved?
We have a process for approving purchases, and project managers are automatically approved to spend up to $100 on their project. I have a way in smartsheet to recognize if the request is coming from a project manager submitting a request for their project, but I can't figure out a way to automatically approve it and/or record "Approved" in the approval column.
The closest I've gotten is to have a condition for the requests less than or equal to $100 which triggers an alert to the project manager that they are approved since it's within their approved spending. This works fin but I'd like to also record the "Approved" in the approval column similar to how you can "Record a Date" or how a request for approval with record approved/disapproved in a designated column.
Ideally, the project manager would not submit the request that is under the threshold, but not everyone reads/follows instruction :)
