Approval: If document approvals are enabled for your PowerSteering context, you will have the option to select an approval method. When an approval method is selected, the document can not be set to Completed until it has been approved by the selected user(s).

  • No approval: The document will not need any kind of approval.
  • Approval required: An approver will need to approve the document before it can be set to Completed.
  • Electronic Signature required: The approver will need to manually enter their username and password in order to approve the document. This electronic signature is retained in the document’s history for audit purposes. Note: A PowerSteering team member must enable Electronic Signature functionality on your site before this option will appear as an Approval option.

Approvers: If an approval method is selected, a required field called Approvers will be displayed. Select at least one user to serve as approver for the document.

PPT Image: If the document is an image file (.jpeg, .png, or .gif file formats), check this box if you want the image to be included in your PowerPoint project summary file. The PowerSteering Administrator must have the PowerPoint template configured to use images.
