Parallel Approval Notification

I tried using a parallel approval in a new workflow since it's exactly what we need, but I noticed that no notifications are sent until after all parties have approved. Am I setting something up incorrectly or is this a flaw in parallel approvals?

 

I also tried setting the "Send Email" action, but that also does not trigger until after all parties approve.

 

Should I give up on parallel approvals? Or is there a way to hook into them with the API? I imagine the "EdmCmdType.EdmCmd_PreState" command would run into the same issue.

 

For reference, I'm using PDM Professional 2018 SP4

 

Thank you,

Tara
