Dear All,

I am trying to setup an approval process where it should get the approvals from “Direct Manager” & “GeoMarket Manager” in series.


The problem is that when finishing the GeoMarket Manager Approval process (After the direct manager approved the request), the approval status is always “Approved” even if the GeoMarket manager reject the request, as below:

The approval process should be working as below:

But the current problem as below:

Could you please advise on this?

Thank you.

You should use out of box "Approval workflow" and while creating the workflow choose the option of "Series Action" instead of parallel, so that the approval email will only go to 2nd person when 1st person approves it.

That should take care of your issue.
