    Do you have an approval workflow form?

    Asked by m.ayfan on March 14, 2017 at 08:59 AM

    Dear Jot Form Team,


    After Greetings,


    kindly asking if I can make a workflow form, so the users have to fill the form and then to be forwarded to the line manager for approval,


    Also, if the user can sign the form electronically, like PDF foms, as currently there is only the option to sign by mouse. 


    thank you,

    Hello, although we don't have an innate feature/option for an approval process, this can still be achieved by using a combination of Notifications, Autoresponders, Edit Submission Link, and Conditions.

    Here's a very detailed instruction, in its simplest idea, on how an approval workflow would work.
