configure request approvals - only one approval needed

it would be great to allow a single approval for a task.

use case - a public request form, i elect 5 people as possible approvers, anyone of them can say approved and the task is approved, kinda like first to approve approves for all since only one approval is required.

way to implement - modify approval settings to pick the number of approvals needed to move forward.

Agreed. This would be very helpful. 

I'd like to set approvers to a user group, and if any 1 person out of the user group approved it completed the approval. Even better would be to have a choice of how many people need to approve out of the user group. 

Use case: In a document management system, we might want 2 approvers out of a group of 5.  This way we get a review of the document to make sure it doesn't miss important information.

This way, all users should provide their responses in order to approve the task. If one of the users rejects it, the task won't be approved:
 
  
 
Is this what you were looking for? In case you need to determine a specific number of approvers, I'd kindly ask you to create a new Product Feedback post to suggest this option 🙂
 
Mike Fank, thank you for your comment. Since your suggestion is different from the idea brought by Nate, I'd recommend also creating a separate Product Feedback post.
 
Pietro Poli, thank you as always for supporting great ideas 😎

Hi Juan,

I think the case is a little bit different.

We want to add like approvers 2 or more people, and if one of this approve, the approvals go on and other approvers are removed from approvals.
