Introduction

Approval Chains are simple ways to set an order to who must see a document before it can be approved.  If my project requires the project manager (me) to receive all submittals and then send them to the architect for review I would set my approval chain as

  1. me
  2. the architect

Set approval chains

To set the approval chain for any document type go to the dashboard and then:

  1. Open the project.
  2. On the Project page, select Project Settings.
  3. On the Project Settings page, you will see a documents tab in the left hand navigation bar.  Select the document type you want to update and you will be able to edit the approval chain.
