Displaying the approval sequence

For pending requests, see the current status of the approval process. The approval sequence is shown as soon as the DBQueue Processor has determined the approvers for the first approval step. In the approval workflow, you can view the approval sequence, the results of each approval step, and the approvers found. If the approval procedure could not find an approver, the request is canceled by the system.

Each approval level of an approval workflow is represented by a special control. The approvers responsible for a particular approval step are shown in a tooltip. Pending attestation questions are also shown in tooltips. These elements are shown in color, the color code reflecting the current status of the approval level.
