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

Thanks!

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.

@Stephen When will this be done? It's been under review for 3 years!

Advocate I

This feature is needed, or could we at least remove the Reason(Optional) hint text or the ability to change the hint text.

This is very important feature for us- when request has been rejected.any kind of toggle to make comments required will help.

Voted for this. Also noticed no comment box appearing for the ReAssign action. Would be great of we get consistent experience re comments for Approve, Reject or ReAssign actions.
