We would love the option to be able to auto-post after approval. So in the standard workflows, have the ability to post once approved.

Thank you for your feedback. We need some more details to understand your suggestion better. Can you please help us by answering the following questions?
Could you please provide a clear business scenario where this is needed? 
There are different kinds of operations that may be executed by users after document is approved. As mentioned below converting a quote to order, different kinds of postings (receiving, shipping, invoicing...) which one of those you had in mind? 
Also this presumes user who approved the document has permissions / license to post the document which may not always be the case. 

Sincerely,
Business Central Team

"auto post" after approval is important, the function already exist in Purchase and Sales Document but not General Journal Batch. we wouldn't want additional steps of user open the batch and do posting again.

Really hope this function can be added into General Journal Batch.

Current workflows only allow auto posting when the final approver is using full license. However, most of the time, final approvers might just use Team Members license which does not have posting rights. That means the posting workflow will not work. We can only use job queue to replace workflows but using job queue as workflow has limitation e.g. when job queue gets into error, all subsequent approved documents will get stuck and not posted.

Can't it be done via the Job queue???

For Sales Invoice and Purchase Invoice, it can be automatically posted via workflow.

Would be great to have the function to convert a quote into an order at the point of approval
