  5. Thereafter, the comment field appears where you can add some details on your approval. You can skip this step by clicking Don't send. 3


If the approval doesn't finish automatically, then the approval creator will have to click the Finish button that appears after all approvers give their decision.

Until the approval is finished (all approvers gave their decision or it was finished manually by its author), you can undo your decision or add a comment to it. Your decision and comment are added to the task or project stream and approvals history.


If you're assigned to approve a file together with a task, folder, or project, then you have to set a decision on the file first in order to close the task/folder/project approval.
