How to Create Multistep Approvals in Jotform Approvals

March 18, 2024

A multistep approval allows multiple approvers to review and decide on requests before the process can advance to the next stage. For instance, you might need HR approval first, followed by setup approvals from IT or other departments.

To create a multistep approval

  1. Starting with the Form element in Jotform Approvals, connect an Approval element.
