    is it possible to set up Multiple approvers? like I want to have 5 potential approvers, and if one or two of them approve, it will go to the next step.

    Hi Michael,

    Thanks for using Jotform. You can add multiple approvers by making an approval flow similar to the screenshot below using a split and merge elements to branch the flow and merge it:

    • Wait for all branches to be completed.

    1658475785_62da5509e3ec6_wait for all.pn

    • Wait for any of the branches to be completed.

    1658475799_62da55176336d_wait for any.pn

    If you choose the Wait for all branches to be completed option, all approvers need to approve the request for workflow to continue to the next step. In my example above, I set up an Email to go out upon approval and ended the flow there.

    If you choose the Wait for any of the branches to be completed option, only one approver needs to approve the request for workflow to continue to the next step.

    Also you can check out the guide about approvals here.

    Give it a try and reach out again if you have any other questions.
