How to Enforce all parameter users to approve my document

Hi !

I have a question.

I have a workflow with parameters (users type).
Here is the begining of my workflow :


Système de la gestion de la qualité
{workflowparameter:vérificateurs VALIDATION|type=user|edit=true}

{workflowparameter:Vérificateurs APPROBATION|type=user|edit=true}

{workflowparameter:Vérificateurs DIFFUSION|type=user|edit=true}

{approval:Relecture Redaction|assignable=true|user=@vérificateurs VALIDATION@}
{approval:Relecture Validation|assignable=true|user=@Vérificateurs APPROBATION@}
{approval:Relecture Approbation|assignable=true|user=@Vérificateurs DIFFUSION@}


When my document is written, I can choose all parameters for the workflow.


I can choose several users by step.

For the moment, when only one of those users approve, document changes state.

I would like to enforce all selected users in the parameters to approve the state of my document.

Could you please help me for this?

Thank you very much !
Have a nice day !

Hi @Caroline Wanlin 

To auto-assign users and enforce them all to review, you need to make two small changes to your approval macros:

  1. Remove assignable=true
  2. Prefix the user parameter with & (ampersand) 


{approval:Relecture Redaction|user=&@vérificateurs VALIDATION@}

For more details, see:

Big thx to you @James Conway _Comalatech_ 

it works exactly how i want !

Have a nice day :-)

@James Conway _Comalatech_ Can i ask you other questions here ?


in our workflow, we can add people in parameters at every state of the approval.

But if i had someone after state change, i have not this person in front of Approve and reject button.

Do you know how is it possible to change that?

Thank you very much !!

Have a nice weekend !

Hi @Caroline Wanlin 

I understand that you want to update the current approval if you change the relevant parameter. This is possible, but gets a little more complicated. 

Our support team have helped users with similar queries, however the approach they recommend depends on the specific use case. Can I ask that you contact the team at with a more detailed description of your use case.

I'll make a note of your question here and see if we can do something around this in the future.

Kind regards
