How can I trigger the approval workflow automatically after submitting new form via API?

    I'm using the end-point{FormId}/submissions?apiKey= to submit new entries. Unfortunately, those entries don't get triggered automatically in the approval workflow. I also get this message when open the form submissions:

    This submission is not connected to the approval flow. To start the approval flow click the button.

    along with a "Start approval flow" button.

    I hope that there's a way to do that automatically via api.

    Hello Ayman,

    Thank you for reaching out to Jotform Support. Unfortunately, such functionality is not yet available; however, Jotform Approvals make it easy for you to set up approval flows for your form.

    Please see this guide about How to Create an Approval Flow in Jotform and A General Approach on Building an Approval Process Workflow.

    If you need further assistance, please let us know.
