Learn how to set up an approval workflow on your Google Form with Form Publisher.
First, create a Google Form, your template and configure Form Publisher. Then follow the steps below.
1. Add validators to your Google Form

1.1. The validator is not the same person as the form submitter

Tips: If you have inserted a dropdown item containing email addresses in your Google Form, you can also reuse the title as the validator marker (make sure to select also 'Don't send email' next to the form owner's email address):
1.2. The validator is the same person as the form submitter
In that case, make sure that you do not select 'Collect email address' in your form settings:
Then manually add a new question title (or Short answer item) called 'Email address' in your Google Form, and reuse the <<Email address>> marker as validators:
2. Enable the approval workflow in Form Publisher
Then make sure to activate the approval workflow option, and save it.

You are now ready to use the approval workflow.
