Confirm your email address by following the link in the email we’ve sent you
Step 3. Answer a few questions for AI to generate your approval form

Now, you need to create a workflow in Approveit where MS Teams is chosen as a communication channel
Step 6. Sync your users from MS Teams with Approveit
Go to the Org Structure & Team tab and press “Add new team member”
In the window that appears before you, switch to “Add multiple team members” tab and choose to import users from Microsoft
Now, all your Microsoft Team users should appear in the Org Structure & Team tab.
Step 7. Configure your workflow
Go to Automation -> Workflows -> Create new workflow
Choose Microsoft Teams to be the default communications channel for this workflow
Choose your approval form template and configure your approval form.
Step 8. Pick approvers from the dropdown list. Choose MS Teams as a communication channel for each approver
Click Next to save your workflow
All the following steps will take place in MS teams
To create a request, click New approval request and you will be redirected to the web application (currently requests can not be created via MS Teams)
Choose the workflow you’ve created from the dropdown list, and click next to proceed to the approval form.
Upon request submission, you will see a message in MS Teams
If you are set as an approver in the workflow – you will receive a message when your approval is required
If you click View Request Details you will be redirected to the page where you can review the request and Approve/Reject/Request an update
You can also view the approval request history and filter by status or workflow
Admins can view all the requests, while members (requestors/approvers) can view only the requests that involve them
