We have a list of approvers and require approval from only one. we set that approver as the owner automatically when the ticket is approved. This makes it easier to track in the parent ticket. thanks.
i updated the file and commented out the comment ...but think i will switch over to this method instead.

If you do that, approvals will break catastrophically.

Just make the New Pending Approval blank, RT doesn't send emails if
the template in use is blank.

It is interesting that you're using Owners of approval tickets (who
are typically the Approvers) AND have multiple approvers (which
generally means you're using AdminCcs).
