If a record is Locked by an Approval Process, we should show this in Skuid. We can check this by querying the ProcessInstance table where TargetObjectId = objectBeingEditedInSkuid.
If an Approval Process is defined for a given Object, a "Submit for Approval" button should be able to be added to that Object. This should kick off an Approval process in Apex. We can dynamically instantiate Approval processes in Apex, I believe, because ApprovalProcesses are interfaces in Apex."

Official Response
In the Millau release, we added Data Source Actions to the Salesforce Data Source Type that allow you to perform all of the following actions:

  • Submit for Approval: Submits a Salesforce record for approval.

  • Approve: Approves a submitted record.

  • Reject: Rejects a record that has been submitted for approval.

  • Recall: Recalls a record that has been submitted for approval.

  • Unlock: Unlocks a record for editing after the record has been submitted for approval.

For more information, see the docs.
