I have a client that requires two people to approve the PO.  I have set the Approver to “Employees by Filter” in the used Rule Action however once the first user Approves the PO is approving without the second approval.

The settings i have used are below. What am i missing?  Any help appreciated.

Hi @lauracastagna @cmetzger 


I’ve just figured out that you have to use or condition when you want to approve document by all the employee assigned under approver map when you use Employee by Filter” and it works in my demo instance.

I believe you need to add a second approval step. Because the single step is satisfied by a single approval, a second step is needed for a second approval.


First step - On Approval, collect all approvals

Second step - On Approval, approve document


Warning: If an employee is assigned in both steps due to a filter or workgroup, one approval will still satisfy both steps.
