How it works

Getting started with Approval Donkey is as easy as 1, 2, 3...

1. Create

Automate your requests from your favourite apps like Trello, Evernote, Asana, Gmail and much more.


Leverage your existing Wix Form to turn form submissions into automated, tracked approval workflows. 


Use Outlook to send and receive approval requests and stay in Outlook to approve them.

Approval requests using email, online forms, or your favorite app.

Route ‘Submitted for Approval’ requests to multiple approvers, add steps and conditions so transactions are approved by who needs to.

Approval Donkey works to automate and streamline your approval workflows. It works for users who may require transactions to be approved by people who don’t or shouldn’t need to login to Xero or when multiple approvers are required against a single transaction. Donkey work is defined as “the boring or laborious part of a job” so by calling ourselves Approval Donkey we aim to take care of the boring and laborious part of approvals, as a result saving you time, frustration and ultimately money.
