Unlock Pre-approval is a feature of Unlock that allows Super Admins to take actions using Unlock without required approval by the Security officer on each request.

This is ideal for situations where Admins do not need to get constant approval for the Unlock feature:

  • Email – View, download, or remove emails and Set up Email delegation
  • Drive files – View file content, change ownership of files only if you have power over the /* ( all users ), 
  • Flow – Onboard, Offboard, Modify
