Requesting changes on an approval task incorrectly unblocks a dependent task


I’m almost 100% sure this is expected behavior.

But I’d like to hear how developers or product team would use dependent + approval tasks that don’t fall prey to this problem for something like this:

  • Create outline
    • Approve outline [approval subtask]
  • Write report [blocked by Create outline]

The above is a partial solution; if you add dependencies for the first two items it will break as @anon52060281 indicates.

Is the recommendation to not use dependencies but instead use a custom field and rules to treat this as more of a pipeline workflow?
