What is a Default Approver? (Stand-alone)

When a new value is added to a field in the workflow, chances are that this is not reflected in the approval matrix for a particular step.

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 the 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”.
