  1. Approvals - Multiple attachments, multi-level approvals

    1st, the apps only allow one attachments to be uploaded, I wonder if it can allowed multiple attachments to be uploaded.

    2nd, sometimes a documents required 2 to 3 levels of approvals. I wonder if Microsoft can allow multi-level approval in specific sequence or order of approvals.

    Thank you.

  3. Approvals - Send email with Approval Confirmation

    I love the idea of the new Approvals app in Team. But I would highly recommend sending an email confirmation once the file has an approval. Being able to save those approvals is beneficial in the IT world.

  4. Approvals - ability to have sequential approvals

    In our organisation, when sometimes requires multiple levels of approval from Team Leader -> Manager -> Director -> GM. These people don't need, nor want, to see the request until the level below them has approved the request. Would it be possible to implement the ability for "sequential" approvals?
    I've seen that this could be achieved using Power Automate, but just trying to see if it can be contained within the app?

  5. Print Approvals

    I just discovered the Approvals app within Teams. This could be a game changer! If only it had the ability to print. There's no point in getting an approval if you aren't able to easily document it.

  6. Approvals - Weblinks and Sharepoint link option

    This app would be better if the option for attachment was the same as in a teams conversation where you can link to a document in your Sharepoint.

    Currently, as a work around, I'm pasting in a share link that I've created separately into a comment, but it doesn't hyperlink it so you have to highlight, copy and paste... it's really messy.

    In addition, if the comments box enabled hyperlinks - I could share normal weblinks for approval as well.

    Thank you for your feedback. You are now able to attach SharePoint and OneDrive links to an approval request. We have also started to roll out the ability to attach web links as well.

  7. Approvals - Send Email Notifications

    The Approvals integration in Teams has a lot of potential, but it would be even more useful if it could send email notifications along with the In-App notifications. Maybe it can already, but I couldn't figure it out. Thanks for the help and continued improvements to Teams.

  8. Approval App to work in Private Channels

    99% of all companies that have created Approvals Channels in specific Teams are Private, as not the entire Division / Department / Team would need to have insight into specific expense reports, overtime approvals or anything else. Thus it is critical that the Approval App work on Private (locked) channels as it currently only works in non-private / open channels.

  10. Support approvals markup in Approvals App!

    The approvals markup - which allows the formatting of the approval email body - is not supported in the approvals app.

    Many organisations will have approval workflows with markup in place, which also appear in this app. However, the user experience currently suffers e.g. a user opens the approval via the app only to see the markup plaintext.

    Please fix this!

  11. Approvals

    To be able to use the approval feature in our world, we would need the ability to resubmit a rejected request after the reason for rejection has been corrected. I do not see this option today.

  12. Approval Aps Function

    It would be nice to be able to delete old requests for approvals once they have been approved/denied. Even the ones that I cancelled should be able to delete those, too. That way the app isn't full of past items no longer needed.

  14. connect an Approvals app to a Teams Channel

    It would be great to be able to connect an Approvals app to a Teams Channel. I realize the current set up is based on personal approvals, but it's a really nice feature that would be wonderful to be able to connect to Teams too.

  15. Approvals - Allow the attachment of documents from both My Computer and Teams

    I have a need to use the approvals feature. The only option available is to attach a document from my computer. So if i have a document in Teams, I have to save it to my computer to upload it. It should allow attaching a document from Teams, Sharepoint or my computer. Only having the Upload from My Computer option causes additional work.

  17. Including CC in Approvals

    Having the CC option while creating a new request for Approvals is needed as not all persons included have to be Approvers. There will be parties who are supposed to enforce or act upon the Approvals once received from the Approver. For that reason, they need to be in the loop too.

  18. Approvals Template

    Admins should be able to create Approval Templates e.g. "New Expense Approval"

    Each Template could have a defined group or person that needs to sign off on them.

    This would be especially good if things like multiple approvals are needed.

    I realize Power Automate can do this, but it would be great if end users could do it also.

  19. Share approval - add viewer to approval

    Sometimes you need people in the organization to be able to monitor a given documents approval process and then eventually SEE that it has been approved. For example - get 4 peoples approval on a purchase order and SHARE or SHOW purchasing that that PO has been approved even if THEY did not generate the approval
