Automation for 'unmark' as approval

Really surprised that approval requirement can’t be ‘unmarked’ with automation. Why is this the case?

For example, if a task that was once marked as approval ends up in an ''won’t do" section, I’d like to be able to unmark it for approval

Hi @josh_hinden, thanks for taking the time to provide this feedback.

While this feature isn’t available at this time, hopefully it’s something we can see our Product team implement in the future. :slight_smile:

I’ll keep you posted and let you know if any changes are made!

Thanks. I really think it’s important to have rules / triggers for everything otherwise the benefit of automation is reduced. If one is trying to build a flow to reduce ‘human error’ (laziness) using ‘sections’ that a user simply has to drag cards to in order to stay organized, the whole thing falls apart when some things happen automatically and others don’t.

For example, I’d like to have a “done-requires approval” column that is separate from a “done column” (doesn’t require approval) along with a “changes requested” column and a “rejected” column. These types of workflows become tricky to build which isn’t a major issue, but if the rest of the workflow is reliant on ‘dragging cards’ to ‘sections’ then it fractures the logic. Hope that helps to provide some insight as to why ‘unmark as approval’ (along with other missing approval automation) is desired. Thanks
