Allow "and/or" approver selection - Multiple approvers when only one is needed

I'd like to be able to add multiple optional approvers to a task/project without requiring that all of them approve the task/project for it to continue.  This would be useful for example when a manager is out of office and their designated backup can cover for them.

Some tasks just need someone to approve, and it's not critical that it's a specific person.

Approval could even be assigned to a group of managers, when only one of them is needed.

 

Adding this "and/or" functionality would preserve the current approach when multiple approvals are mos appropriate, while also allowing flexibility in the approvals process.

 

Thanks for your consideration!

This would be super helpful for us as well. We have an approval process where the final approval could come from either of 2 team members. It doesn't matter which one approves, we just need approval from 1. Right now we are having to assign them both and then wait for both approvals.

I would love to have this.  Also the ability to combine approvers and guest reviewers in one approval process.

It would be very uself indeed, We have Engineering Change that sometimes required the approval of one person only but that is different for each case.
I am also surprise that Wrike didn't make it possible for a group of users
Any updates on this ?

something similar would be great for my org as well.

In our case, we would like the ability for approval to be reached once a majority of the approvers approve. So if 3/5 have approved, the request is now approved. If only 2/5 approve, it gets rejected.

Another upvote for a "1 out of many" approval system please. You could even have the notion of approval groups for this. And then set the 'pass count' for that group. So approval would go to QA for example, and anyone in that group could approve - and it would require a minimum level to be considered fully approved.

I would love to see something like this too. I would like to change or add approvers when moving a task to a new folder.
