Defining Get Next Approver rules
Get Next Approver rules obtain a list of approvers for an approval request. The number of signature-line records created for the approver list depends on the definition of the Get Next Approver rule:
- When If Multiple Approvers is set to One Must Sign, the approval server creates a single signature record for the entire approver list. To complete the signature record, only one of the approvers in the list must act on the approval request.
- When If Multiple Approvers is set to All Must Sign, the approval server creates a separate signature record for each approver in the approver list. If a role is in the approver list, the approval server creates a separate signature record for each member of the role. In this case, each approver must act on the approval request to complete his or her signature line.
A signature record is considered complete when any approver on the signature record approves, rejects, or cancels the approval request.
