    Hi, in the approval workflow, i need to send PDF to other accounts once it had been approved. First, just the manager  to receive an email with the Approve Reject option, then once approved the rest of the team receives an email with the PDF Attached.

    I would like to achieve the same as Orlando. Do you have an option for this?

    Hi Ilse Form,

    Unfortunately a multi approval feature to generate files is not available for the moment.

    We apologize for the inconvenience.

    Hi,

    I have set up approval workflow. I was receiving approval/rejection emails but after receiving a couple of them, I have stopped receiving them. I can see the responses are being published and getting saved in my GDrive but I am not getting email notification for approval/rejection

    Hello,

    I have created an approval workflow using Google Forms Publisher. One of the fields in the form is a file upload. When the PDF is generated for the approver, they do not have access to view the upload. I am automatically granted access as the owner of the form, but I won't be the one doing the approvals. Is there a way to change the sharing settings on the file upload so my approvers can automatically view and dont have to request access? 

    Thanks!
    Ellen

    Hi Ellen, 

    One solution would be to share your spreadsheet with other approvers so they can access to the files uploaded by clicking on the link generated as explained in this article: https://support.form-publisher.com/hc/en-us/articles/360003641620.

    If you have other question or issue, please let us know with our contact form here: https://support.form-publisher.com/hc/en-us/requests/new

    Thanks

    Hi Remi,

     

    Unfortunately, this did not work. This only gave my approver access to the spreadsheet, but still did not allow him access to the linked document in the spreadsheet. I had to manually give him access.

    Hi,

    Could you help to guide or explain in further for setting-up a routing/sequential approval/signature on template publisher please..?

    I tried to follow "approval workflow", including to put/write "workflow status/signature/date" but it seems not a code/syntac for a couple/sequential routing workflow.. 

    Say the routing will begin with re-confirmation/e-signature of respondent who submit the form, then must be acknowledeg/validate by certain role whether being inputed on form or manually setting-up on publisher "form/menu" , before FINAL Approval workflow to the Authorized Role.. How should we setting-up such workflow & its syntac ? both in template (syntac) and publisher menu..?

    above condition show requirement flow :
    signature-1 for respondent re-confirm it own submission.
    signature-2 for acknowledment of the submission from respondent.
    signature-3 for final Authorized Role Approval/Agreed after acknowledgement.

    Thanks in advance..
