Approval Workflow with lock & unlock rows

Hi, it seems, that Smartsheet does not allow to lock rows during an Approval request workflow!

The process should be:

Step 1: Starting an Approval workflow on the entired row with a field trigger!

This is completely satisfactory

Step 2: During the Approval request the fields of the entired row should not be changeable!

This could be done with "Lock rows". But after locking, the user isn't able to approve or to decline via sended Smartsheet request!

The question is:

How can I protect fields within a row as long as the requested approval is not answered. The row could only be "Unlocked", when the Approval request has been "Declined" for further changes.

Thanks Kay
