Flex Approval

OOTB Approval shape replacement with enhanced features.

By using or submitting listings via the Pega Marketplace, you agree to our Terms of Use.


Standard Approval shapes are a fundamental part of any Pega Architect's toolkit, commonly employed when an approval step is necessitated in a process. However, business needs can often evolve beyond the standard capabilities of Approval shapes, necessitating a shift to an Assignment shape.

The Flexible Approval Component is designed to expand upon the standard Approval shape capabilities within Pega, providing Pega Architects with a more versatile and dynamic tool to meet complex business requirements.
