Internal communication, collecting requests, approving manual tasks, and a lot more. These all have their place in the internal structure of a company or an organization. There are plenty of tools that are quite good at doing each and every one of them. 

However, especially since the entire world went into lockdown, things have changed a bit. Most of us are working remotely now and things that we used to just walk up and ask are now done through archaic methods such as writing an email, calling said person or department. In a time, where almost everything is automated, why shouldn’t asking for something and getting a response be automated as well?

It definitely should and in fact, it’s possible. In this article, we’ll be reviewing JotForm Approvals, a tool created to transform your online forms into easy-to-implement and effective approval flows. 


Just like JotForm itself, JotForm Approvals is extremely easy to set up and use. All you have to do is to have a JotForm account and once you sign in, you can create your own approval flow within minutes. All you need is to create a form or pick a template that suits your needs. Once you’ve picked which form you want to use in your flow, all you need to do is to create the flow through the settings menu. For more information, you can check the screenshots below:

It’s also extremely easy to manage and track the submissions you get through your approval flow. The JotForm Inbox instantly notifies you when you receive a new submission and you can instantly view the request and based on the information you can approve it or, if you want, reject it right away. 


JotForm Approvals works with mobile devices well too. After all, the idea is to make life easier and as we’re always on our mobile phones, it wouldn’t make sense if JotForm Approvals wasn’t a beast on mobile as well. 

JotForm Approvals works great on mobile browsers just like JotForm but what’s better is that it also works smoothly on the JotForm Mobile Forms app. Anyone who has the app or downloads it can create time-saving approval flows while on the go. 


JotForm Approvals was launched recently but there are already more than a hundred ready-to-use templates available. All of the templates are crafted carefully with professionals that actually use them in their daily life. 

Although creating a form and turning it into an approval flow is extremely fast and easy, you can save even more time by just picking a template that covers your need and as always you have the option to tweak the template to fit your needs exactly as you need it to.
