Approval flows

Approval flows assign records to sequential levels for review and acceptance by a user.

Records are initially assigned to the data steward specified in the Exception Monitor stage. The data steward can review, edit, and accept records. If a record is accepted, it is then assigned to the first approver as defined in the approval flow plan. At this level, the approver can Accept or Reject a record. If a record is accepted it is be assigned to the next approver in the approval flow. If a record is rejected, it is assigned back to the data steward. This is repeated at subsequent levels until the final approver accepts and resolves the record. Resolved records can then be read using the Read Exception stage for additional processing.
