What is a Default Approver? (Dear)

What is a Default Approver? (Dear)

When a new value such as location, product, or inventory account, etc. is added in Dear, chances are that this is not reflected in the approval matrix.

To avoid an automatic approval of such not yet allocated requests, a Default Approver can be specified for each step. Then, if nobody is defined as an Approver based on the approval matrix, the item will be assigned to this Default Approver.

To set a Default Approver, open the approval workflow settings and click in the respective step underneath Default Approver on “Add Approver”. 

Please note: the option Default Approver is only available if there are no Approvers with the rule Always Approves.
