Approval groups and validations

Summary:

The new Approval Groups feature seems to bypass the validation forms we have set up which worked for a single Approval Unit hierarchy. There is a hint in the documentation that you can set up rule-based or cell-based validations in the dimension rule part of the approval group setup but I can't see how that works.

In HFM terms, a submission group and its approval requires 2 elements - a set of dimension members that define the data being submitted e.g. balance sheet accounts and selected movement members; and a validation or lock account that must be satisfied for the group to be promoted/locked. In FCC I can see that the first part is met by the dimension rules but I can't see the equivalent of defining a lock account or form linked to the group.

Howdy, Stranger!
