Mail Approval Notice

schmad01 asked
Last Modified: 2013-12-18
I have a database in which people request mainframe transactions.

There are 8 lines in a table to which a transaction request can be made on each line.
When a transaction is typed in a lookup is done to find the appropriate approver for the transaction.
Then at the end a button is clicked and all approvers are emailed that they need to approve a transaction request.

There are many times when multiple transactions will have the same approver.

How can I keep the mail button from sending multiple emails to the same person?  The approver only needs one notice from that document.
