  2. Simply click on the Panel Email address to open your default Email application (or copy and paste into the 'To' field)
  3. Send your approval request just like you would an email, the request is automatically transformed into a fully tracked approval request and sent to anyone you added to the Panel as a member
  4. Now sit back and relax knowing Approval Donkey has 'got this', you will be automatically notified when any activity occurs on the request including when its approved, declined or overdue etc
