Close parent via status of any 1 subtask

Parent assignment has subtasks. Subtasks can either be Approved or Rejected. How can I make it so the parent task can be closed ONLY if ANY 1 subtask is approved?


******************************************Approve is a workflow status

Conditions must be set in the workflow to allow the outcome of what you want with your subtasks.

Hope the link will be helpful

The condition is actually called "Sub-Task Blocking Condition" if that helps at all. 

Thank you, yes I see this blocking condition. However, I can only find the option to close the parent task if ALL the subtasks are Approved. I want to ability to have engineers submit subtasks from a parent, my team Approve or Reject, and only when 1 subtask is Approved will the parent close.

Is approve a workflow status or a custom field?
