Below is an illustration of the workflow behind our approval process.
Once you’ve added your approval to your page or section, it will transition between these states:
Once approvers are added, they start off as Pending - the approval is awaiting their review. They can choose to Approve or Reject the approval. The overall status will change depending on the approvers' statuses. If a page has been edited or a specific configured time/date has been reached, the status of the Page Approval will return to Pending and approvers will receive an email asking for another review.
If the approval has gathered enough approves (or everyone has approved), its status changes to Approved. The number of required approvals can be modified for Page Approvals.
If one or more members rejects an approval, its status changes to Rejected.
If a page has been edited or a specific configured time/date has been reached, the status of the Approval becomes expired and approvers will receive an email asking for another review.
