Basics of case approval for designers
Case approvals are decision points at which one or more users decide whether to approve or reject a case. For example, an employee submits a request for an equipment upgrade. Equipment upgrade requests are sent to a manager, who either approves or rejects the request.
The Approve/Reject step
Approvals in Pega Platform™ are configured by using the Approve/Reject step. To configure an Approve/Reject step, your LSA will define who is assigned to the approval and how the case proceeds if the case is approved or rejected. To achieve this, they will configure the Approve/Reject step routing and flow.
Both the email and mobile approval options allow stakeholders to approve or reject the case outside of the application.
If the email approval option is enabled, when the case reaches the approval step, the application sends an email to the user or users specified by the step routing.
If the mobile approval is enabled, the application pushes an approval notification to a mobile device.
