Google Workspace (G Suite) Document Approval Workflow Automation

For many of us, data is synonymous with a document, and our businesses rely heavily on documents. That’s why services like Google Drive, DropBox, etc. are more popular than ever.


It also means that a lot of our processes are formed around documents, making Document Approval Workflow Automation a serious need. The approval could be a one or more step sequential approval process, but sometimes it’s a more complex multi-step approval process, where the document it sent back and forth multiple times between multiple people or departments.


Either way, zenphi enables you to easily achieve both with a few drag drops, and without needing to write code.

For sequential processes, simply add as many Approval Task Actions as required to your Flow in a suitable order.

For more complex scenarios, you can use State Machine. Say, in order for a document to be published, the editor needs to approve the document and then you need to get the VP’s and Legal’s approval. However, the VP or legal team may send it back to the editor with some review comments, and the editor will push it to the VP again after incorporating the review comments.

You could do all of this in one Flow instance, using State Machine:
