What is a parallel approval chain?

To set up a pool of approvers ahead of time, but allow some flexibility in the sequence or number of required approvals, create a parallel approval chain.

In a parallel approval chain:

  • all approvers receive notifications simultaneously, and
  • all approvers can approve independently.

Unlike sequential chains, parallel chains can require approval from all, or just one approver.
