We have a requirement where certain approvers need to approve a record. However the expectation is to avoid a delay in the approvals so that certain approvers can approve the record in parallel rather than sequential.
So the refined version is to bunch multiple approvers together in a single step(to achieve parallel approval) & there would be a number of such steps(sequential approval). However all the approvers in a single should approve it before it goes to next level.
We can define the entry criteria at each step level. However the issue is these approval steps depend upon the certain entry criteria (currently determined on a record & tracked as a flag) & all the approvals in a single step may not be required for a specific record.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
