Approval Workflows are a sequence of steps wherein selected Approvers can either mark their approval or make edits to a policy while it pends for approval.
All policies must complete the Approval Workflow process prior to becoming active and searchable.
Document Life Cycle
All policies start in a draft format and pend for approval through an Approval Workflow. When the policy completes the Workflow, it becomes active and searchable. The graphic below displays the life cycle process for a policy to move from draft to active within PolicyStat.
In the next section, we'll look at how PolicyStat notifies you that a policy requires your attention.
