How do I request a gate approval?

Once all deliverables have completed statuses and all other gate conditions have been satisfied, you may be able to submit a request for gate approval. Once an approval request has been submitted, all users that are assigned to that specific gate approval role will receive a notification in their PowerSteering Inbox and the Summary page will display the approval status. This article describes how to request a gate approval.

Note: Administrators can define when and which user(s) can request approval for gates on a gated project. See the article What are the phase advancement configuration options? for more information.
