  • Hello,

    Can you please clear my one doubt regarding Kaleo workflow.

    Is it neccessary that the Kaleo workflow will always pass through admin and admin will always have the right to assign it to someone else or to self? I'm producing the test cases of what is happening with my workflow and what I actually want:
    I have the following roles:

    1. Admin-Test
    2. First approver-Approver1
    3. Second Approver-Approver2
    4. User-test333



    Now my workflow is passing like this:
    User->Approver1->Approver2(If I do not open Admin with my credentials of TEST)
    Otherwise:
    User->Admin->When Assigned to Approver1->Approver1->Approver2
    ->When Assigned to me->Admin only becomes both Approver1 and Approver2 and is approving or rejecting the same.

    I don't want the second case to happen and it should follow only the first test Case: User->Approver1->Approver2
    Admin should not have the right to approve or reject. Is it possible somehow?
