Spend Authorization with Multiple approval groups

Received Response


We have a requirement to route Spend Authorization workflow to 4 approval groups. Each group has multiple users.

Every group should receive an approval notification and each group should approve under first responder wins.

  1. All groups should receive the approval notifications in parallel
  2. Only 1 person in each group should action (first responder wins)
  3. All groups need to respond before the workflow finally completes
  4. If one group rejects, the entire workflow rejects. All groups must approve in order for the workflow to approve.

I can create 4 groups and I can add 4 groups to the workflow but within 1 rule, it doesn't seem possible to have the groups approve on a first responder wins basis. When multiple groups are in the rule, it just approves based on the first approver. I can change the voting % to 100 percent but when I do this, every single person in every group has to respond before the workflow completes, rather than just one person from the group.

Howdy, Stranger!
