How we can differentiate in between Approval types of Approval, Review and Verification according to its functionality. 
If I have to use any one from the above for approval then which type I will select to add approve in the work item in RTC? Also tell the condition when use a specific approval type?

Hi Vikas,

RTC is a Jazz based product integrating and collaborating various tasks such as work item tracking, Source code management, iteration planning, and continuous builds. It offers various capabilities so that it can be integrated as desired by the team to achieve the common goal more efficiently, and thus increasing their productivity. RTC achieves this task through the interaction of Project Areas, Streams, Components and Work Items. RTC also provides review, approval and verification processes for it's work items. This process is followed by approval records found in work item's approval tab.

Approval records, if mandated on work items, can require a user to either accept or reject the record based on some user desired condition. For example, the state transitioning of the work item. When a user tries to save a work item that requires an approval for a state transition, and the work item is not approved, the save operation fails and a message is displayed in the Team Advisor View. Similarly, through the approval tracking section in project configuration, the user can control the workflow of the work item through approvals.

Find some examples.
