How can I change Approvers for a particular request on the fly?
There is an option to edit the Approvers for particular requests without having to modify the whole approval workflow every time. Administrators, Approvers, and Requesters of an Organisation have different privileges in terms of changing Approvers:
1. ApprovalMax provides Administrators with the option of adjusting Approvers for a running request in order to handle exceptional, non-standard situations. An Organisation's Administrator can:
Add any Approver
Remove any Approver
2. Approvers can add other Approvers from their Organisation, remove the ones they
have previously added, and reassign the request to another Approver.
However, Approvers cannot remove Approvers that were added by approval workflow rules or
by someone else (these are marked with a “Locked” icon).
3. Requesters can add other Approvers from their
Organisation to any step, and remove the ones they have previously added.
