Sequential approval rules Some workflows require pre-approval before the final approver is required to sign off. For example, a company may have a sequential approval policy that requires pre-approval for certain expenses before they’re approved by the Finance department. Now you can create custom rules that require multiple steps. Approvers will be notified sequentially, as eac rule is met. You can find this in Company settings, Customisation and then click Approval rules.
