Approval Cycle

The Approval Cycle action specifies a list of reviewers that must give their approval (by simply selecting an Approve button) in order for the process to continue. This allows you to build simple approval cycles into a process that allow the next set of actions that follow the approval cycle to continue.

The Approval Cycle action also creates inner-items beneath the root item that triggers the process, so you can monitor each request for approval.

Turn Action Block On or Off

By default, action blocks are enabled and turned on. Select the toggle in the top right of the action panel to disable or turn it off.

When building a module, remember you can toggle actions on and off rather than deleting them.
