You may get lot of feeds about different activities like when an announcement is made, when an employee record is modified etc., Now let's take the Leave Approval use case as an example and see how that works in Feeds.
Say, approval has been configured for casual leave type and approval is set for two levels. When an employee applies casual leave, a feed will pop-up on the approvers and the employee dashboard wall. Once the first-level approver approves the leave request, it will go to the second-level approver and when the leave request is completely approved, the employee will be notified.
