    Can Approval Group members be parallel?  i.e. if one approves then no need to go through the remaining list

    Yasmin - Yes, It can be a parallel approval with first responder wins mode.

        Hello,

        how can we configure approval group parallel? I went to Manage Approval Groups for Human Capital Management and I created a static Group. I added inside the group 2 people as you can see in the below screenshot. I added this approval group in the Performance management flow. Then, I tested it but, the approval task went at first to the first employee in the approval group and only after he approved the task it went to the second employee in the group for another approval. So the approval seems to be sequential and not in parallel. How can I configure an approval group with parallel approvers?

        Thanks

          Hi Valeria,

          I suggest you post your question to the Workforce Rewards Forum, so someone familiar with this approval workflow can reply.

          Valeria,

          The parallel vs serial approval is not determined by the workflow group. It is based on what rule set you are using when building the approvals. Using the FinApInvoiceApproval as an example, there are stages titles ParallelParticipantsinParallel and SingleParticipantOneinSequence. The same group would function differently in each of those. You need to choose the rule set that allow parallel approvals.
