How to Manage Requests for Approvals and Approvals

You can add a new status and name it “Request for Approval”. You can set the progress to whatever percentage that you’d like, except 100%.

Then you can create another status and name it “Approved”. Now, set the progress to 100%.

You can also create another status and name it “Rejected” and set a progress percentage to anything but 100%.

To authorize the approval or rejection of a request, you need to configure the permissions for the designated role responsible for this action.

Permission Control is exclusively made for Professional and higher subscription tiers. More information can be found on our Pricing page.

Go to your Organization and choose Edit members in the dropdown menu, scroll down to the bottom of the page, and choose Show all roles in the Permission Control section.
