How to Enable Approvals Requests in Chatter

Approval Process

An approval process maps the steps for approving a record, like an account, and identifies the person who approves each step. The approval process can send an approval request as a Chatter post. You can create a template for that post to ensure that the same type of data is posted with every request.

To enable Approval requests in Chatter:

  1. From Setup, enter Chatter Settings in the Quick Find box, and then click Chatter Settings.
  2. Click Edit.
  3. In the Approval Posts section, select Allow Approvals.
  4. Click Save.

If any of your users opt out of receiving approval request posts, then those users don’t see them in their own feed.
