All Approval vs. Any Approval for Groups
Within Admation, you can control how many people are required to give you feedback on a particular approval level. This is done by using the ALL () and ANY () buttons. The different approval options are most suitable for groups in an approval submission. If there’s more than one person in a given group, sometimes it can be more efficient to limit the number of people who need to approve or request changes to artwork, for that feedback to be valid.
The icon for an ALL approval looks like this:
The ALL approval is usually selected by default. It suggests that everyone within a given group or team needs to sight and approve the work, to be valid.
The icon for an ANY approval looks like this:
The ANY approval suggests that one person’s approval within that group is sufficient. Once one person within that group responds, no further input is needed from the other group members. That one person speaks on behalf of the rest of the group in order for a response to be valid.
In an ANY approval, once feedback is received by one of those group members, the remaining members can no longer provide their feedback on an item (and are locked out from providing feedback).
Using these approval types in context
In the photo below:
- ALL of the members in the Marketing group will need to provide their feedback
- ANY of the members in the Legal group can provide their feedback. Once one of these people provide their feedback, the remaining members of the group will not be able to.
If you’re unsure about ANY or ALL approvals, you may want to talk to your Admation Client Success manager about the best options for your business. You can also apply approval types for levels.
