Content Approval Methods

There are several ways to approve content depending on your preferred workflow. Content can be approved in any place it can be seen in Opal, including:

  • Personal Panel
  • Calendar
  • Mobile App
  • Presentation
Tip: Opal recommends only approving content if there are no changes to be made. Decline a piece of content when a change needs to be made by another user, even if the change is small. This ensures that no last-minute edits are missed before publishing.


A convenient way to approve when you’re on-the-go is via email.

You can specify in your email settings if you’d like to receive a daily digest of all your approval requests or a single email per request.

If you’re set up to receive an email per approval request in your profile settings, you will be able to approve or decline directly from the email. Simply click on the green approve button to approve or the red to decline. Doing so will open a draft email in your email client.

Tip: Be sure to include a detailed comment if you are declining content, so your team has a clear idea of next steps.
Important: If you are set up to receive a daily approval digest, you will not be able to approve by email.

Opal on Mobile

One of the most convenient ways to approve content when on-the-go is Opal on mobile. Download our mobile application through the App Store.

Tapping on a piece of content pending your approval will prompt you to select approve or decline with the option of adding feedback.

To see all of the content pending your approval in a workspace, tap on the Approvals tab located in the navigation bar along the bottom of the screen.

Tip: Opt-in to receive a push notifications to stay in the loop when new approval requests are sent to you. This setting can be managed in the app settings on your smartphone.
