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.

We are also receiving questions to make the comments field mandatory (especially when someone rejects the approval task). Coudn't this possibility be included as a checkbox?

It's confusing for our clients to have an optional comments. They want sometimes a mandatory if it's reject or hide them depending of the approval level.


Do you think you will do something ?

This is a must. From a business point of view, if someone rejects something (which is usually the exception), the reasons for the rejection may need to be kept for auditing purposes.
