Approve or Reject

Approval at asset level, this means that if several users have access to this asset, when approved by one of them, it is considered as approved for all. The other way is the "shared" approval, that means that each user in the project can approve or reject, but this is a per user approval. Final approval will be defined by a logical rule using logical operators like AND and OR.
This gives you a unique way to decide when an asset is approved or rejected based on parallel user decision. You don't need to wait for a user to make a decision in order to ask others decision. They all access at the same time and Aproove will tell you when your approval rules are reached.
