- To understand how to add a committee to an approval workflow
Approval Workflows cover the required steps for compliance, but PolicyStat also offers collaborative commenting to gather input from any PolicyStat users outside the Workflow within the tool.
For more on collaborative commenting, see this article.
Some policies require review by a committee, and sometimes membership in the committee can be fluid and change often. PolicyStat allows a committee to be named as part of an Approval Workflow, an Approval Workflow can list a committee name and designate one Approver as responsible for marking that committee's approval. That way, the committee can discuss the policy during a meeting and mark approvals without requiring everyone to log in to PolicyStat to do so.
In the example below, on Step 3 of this Approval Workflow, Scott Whitehouse would be responsible for presenting the pending policy to the HR committee. When the members of the HR committee agree to approve the policy, Scott will be responsible for logging in to PolicyStat to provide approval on the committee's behalf.
