Set up in minutes
No IT required. Use an existing Google Form and add approvers. When form submissions are made, approvers will be emailed.
Set parallel or sequential approvals to ensure your executives are only approving once endorsed by others.
Look-up approvers based on answers to the form response or simply let the requestor select or enter the approver.
Add a group of recipients and have only one member of the group to respond.
Role based workflows
Choose a role for your recipient (e.g Approve, Sign, Recommend, Acknowledge, Action or Receive a Copy).
Set logic with your approvals to ensure approvers only receive the requests that are relevant to them.
Notifications sent by email and approved with a single click.
Personalize notification content, and include attachments based on a template.
Designed mobile-first, and is fantastic to work with on desktop & tablet also.

We use Form Approvals for requisitions. Our process is complicated, but the add-on has converted it into a workflow that is transparent, flexible and secure. I particularly like the improved version whereby each layer's scope (recommend, edit or approve or simply gets cc-ed) can be set. Support is also always available and prompt.

We previously had many problems with our payment requests because even when we used Google Forms, the approval process was slow and inefficient. We looked for different solutions and Form Approvals was the easiest and most affordable. The embedded "approve/deny" option in email notifications is fast and simple.

We previously used Sharepoint and a few other methods (for Leave Management and Professional Development processes), but I continue to be shocked at the usability and simplicity of this add-on. It is highly configurable, yet so simple. The customer service is also extremely reliable.

Build any approval process you need
Gone are the days of bespoke and expensive workflow tools, Form Approvals provides you with a highly configurable workflow framework, allowing you to automate any process requiring approval. Common use cases are:
Establish governance around requests for personal development. Allow managers to approve / reject then set the add-on to automatically notify the requestor once approved.
Capture time off requests, allowing managers to plan team resource by approving / rejecting accordingly. Set up the add-on to, if approved, automatically send request information to Payroll.
Provide management visibility into business expense reimbursement requests, allowing them to approve / reject. Set up the add-on to send request information to Payroll for reimbursement.
