In Skovik, it is possible to set up an approval chain consisting of one or multiple levels of approval. These steps are either a superior step or a group step.
A superior step means the employee's line manager approves the report. The manager is responsible for the approval, and only the manager can approve the report (unless the report is delegated elsewhere).
A group step means that a group of people (i.e., the payroll department) is responsible for approving the report. The report will end up in all group members' review queues, but only one member will need to approve it.
