2552343 - Is Auto-approval of workflow possible?

Symptom

Resolution

  • Workflows will not be auto-approved by system under any circumstances. As per security and product design, this is the current behavior.
  • We can however do workflow delegation (determined by approver) or automatic workflow escalation wherein the workflow will be sent to another approver when current approver doesnt respond for X timeframe.
