    Hi there,

    I have set up a recruitment request form and set up the workflows with it. While testing it with one approver, it worked great. Now i have set up conditional workflows for two approvers and one approver is notified of the request, he cannot approve from the email and when he goes into jotform, there is no approve / deny button. I have checked my workflow and it is logical so not sure what i am missing. It also doesn't show any approvals pending

    I was able to replicate it on my end. It doesn't show the approval button if the there are two if/else condition in the workflow.

    Thanks Jed.
    So maybe I should create one approval flow with a branch off for one if/else condition? Will that mean then that if an option is selected that is not true to the if/else condition, it will continue down the workflow? Thanks!

    Greetings, Cheri! 👋

    Thanks for your reply.

    The problem is that the Form Element has more than 2 connections. For now, Developers recommend having only one connection to the original Form Element.

    Yes, Cheri, you are right. The workaround here is to delete 2 if/else conditions and use one Conditional Branch element:



    Please, try to use only one connection and reply if the issue persists.

    Hi cherijohnston,

    We have implemented the functionality to setup parallel approval flows as you have tried with if/else element in your workflow. So now without having to use conditional branch your flow should be working.

    Can you please test your flow and let us know if the issue still persists?
