This article is for Approve, which is our newest app for building approval processes.
This article will cover common issues you may encounter within the Approve app and how you can troubleshoot them.

There are several reasons why you might encounter this error, however, the underlying issue is almost always the same – the app is unable to find sufficient approvers to meet the required responses.
Some of the reasons why you might encounter this error are:
1. You have set the required responses greater than that of the approver pool.
2. You have enabled the option that excludes the sender from the approver pool.
Commonly occurs during testing when you are both the sender and the recipient. You will need to disable this option or assign someone other than yourself as the recipient.
3. You have manually input an email address directly into the recipient field.
This can be identified by the lack of a user icon to the left of the approver's email/name.
You will need to use the search functionality to add an individual user.
If the user does not exist, you will need to create them as an end-user within Zendesk, refresh the browser and then search for them again.
4. You are using a custom ticket field and there is no valid user.
If you set the recipient to reference a ticket/user/organisation field, and that field is either empty or the liquid has not been set correctly, you may encounter this error.

If you're unsure about the following information, please refer to our article on how to create a custom field for approver selection.

Lookup field: Ensure this field is present since user error shouldn't be possible.
Drop-down or Multi-select field: Ensure that each field value has the correct user id assigned. Below is an example of an invalid field value.
