Page Composer, using Fluid Approvals for custom Approval Framework (AWE) Approvals

Currently, in order to use Fluid Approvals the Transaction Configuration must be configured with a Classic Approval Component and Page, which is bases for generating the URL in Approval Email. For Delivered transactions the classic URL requires Application Development to perform conditional navigation based on whether or not the Approver has the 'Approvals Fluid' Role or not, and to check status of the specific Approval Step to see if it is Pending, or been Completed and is Approved or Denied. For the former, Approver is taken to either Fluid Pending Approval page, or a Classic Pending Approval page, depending on if they have the Role or not.

When new custom AWE Fluid Approvals are developed that will not ever need to go to a classic Approval Page, it is extra work to have to create an Approval Component and Page. The expectation is that Transaction Configuration should be able to be configured with Fluid Component and Approval Page. That the Approval Email URL Links will include the Fluid Approval Component and Page, and that regardless of whether the Approval is Pending or Completed, the possible Approver will be shown the appropriate page - Pending that has Approval Buttons, or History in display only that shows Completed status of the transaction.

Due to current design, users developing custom AWE that will only be used as Fluid Approval currently have to use more development man hours to create classic Approval Component and Page that will never be used for actual Approvals, and they have to code for conditional navigation related to requirement of 'Approvals Fluid' Role.
