Voting on approval requests

If you are an authorized approver, you can vote on accepting or rejecting a request from within the record (such as a ticket) or via email. You can view voting history and add comments to accompany your vote, and you may be able to change your vote if needed.

Approval may be requested for any tickets, CIs, surveys, contracts, service level targets, work targets, services, and solutions.

Note

You cannot vote on a record that another user is editing. A warning appears, advising you of the situation. You can try to vote a little later.
