Modern Approvals - option for comments required

Could an option be provided to set the comments field as required?


Possible options:

  • Required for Approve and Reject (I'm the most interested in this option myself as this feature has been requested by various clients)  
  • Required for either Approve or Reject


Status: Under Review

You could do this by re-sending the approval request with a note that comments are required, but this is clearly not ideal. We'll look at a better way to do this. Thank you.

Thanks for the reply. Users don't do anything unless they are forced to. When you have a process requirement, using suggestions is not a guaranteed method. 

Besides, if I said that comments were required, and they weren't actually required, that would make me a liar 🙂

Has there been any movement on this front? Is there a workaround to making comments required? It's a requirement that has been present in other workflows... surely it's coming soon, right?

Not applicable

Is this possible now?

I've seen no change.

Another vote for this functionality.
