Multistep Approval Process using Multiple Approvers


I have a requirement in the Approval Process where it has multiple approvers assigned. When I submit the record for approval if 1st Approver approved and 2nd Rejected then the Approval Request should reach to 3rd Approver also...
knew that if any of the approvers rejects the record it will not go to the next approver. But, is there any possibility of achieving this...
Thanks in Advance...

Hi Sai,

please find the below Solution


This is definitely possible inside Salesforce's approval process. It utilizes Approval steps (https://help.salesforce.com/articleView?id=approvals_creating_approval_steps.htm&type=5) This would utilize a 3 step approach.
Here is a Youtube demonstration of a scenario of requiring two approvers (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fM3xHN8M9-8) Here is another Youtube video from a Dreamforce session (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m8XmfBQDSpY) that goes more into depth on workflow and approval process.
Finally, here are some more examples of approval process to help you along. (http://na12.salesforce.com/help/doc/en/approvals_useful_approval_processes.htm)
