For more control within your company over what is sent and signed, Tomorro allows you to set up workflows in a few clicks, creating approval conditions at different stages of the negotiation cycle.

You give autonomy to your collaborators to create their documents and materials while keeping an eye on what is sent/signed, nothing could be easier 🙌

Tomorro allows you to create two types of approval workflows:

  • before the document is first sent to the counterparty, and/or

  • before the document is signed.

💡 Workflows are set up per template, so you can manage each template independently.

Approval before first sending vs. Approval before signing

What is the difference?

These are two approval workflows you can set up, at different times in the life of your contract negotiation.

📮 Before First Send

The approval workflows is triggered when the user wants to send the document via Tomorro to the counterparty, for the first time.

✍️ Before signing

The approval workflows is triggered when the user wants to launch the signature of the document via Tomorro.

2. Then open the correct template.

🚔 How do I add approvers?

First, to add an approver, click on "No Approval workflow", then choose the option you want from the ones available in the drop-down menu :

  • Everyone must approve: All approvers need to approve, no matter the order

  • One after another: All approvers need to approve but in a specific order you can define.

Then click on "Add an approver".

Repeat the operation if you need more than one approver.

You can add as many approvers as you want. Each approval step is managed independently of the other.
