Cluedoo adds additional features to personalize approval workflow by:
- Managing approval rules by groups and option to specify a hierarchical approval procedure
- Recording approval histories
- Adding a button to revoke the whole approval sequence


Company needs to setup approval rules on purchasing as below:
- For RFQ under $1000, needs approval from Department Manager to confirm RFQ.
- For RFQ from $1000, needs approval from Department Manager, then Accounting Manager, to confirm RFQ.

There are 2 ways to create Approval Rules:

- By go to Studio Approval Rules

Option 1: By studio

1. Open an RFQ in studio, click on Confirm button to edit
2. Check "Set approval rules" checkbox

3. Select Approval Group and Responsible person for the Rule 
(note: Any users in the selected Approval Group can approve the rule, but only Responsible will be notified for the scheduled activities) 

4. Add condition for the rule by clicking on the Funnel icon next to Approval Group box

5. Close Studio.


Option 2: By go to Studio Approval Rules 

User can also view/create new Approval Rules by activating developer mode, then go to Settings/Technical/Studio Approval Rules.

For the use case, 3 rules were created:
- For RFQ under $1000, rule (5). 
- For RFQ from $1000, rule (3) and (4).

At this step, the rules are still separate rules.

2. Fill out Group name
