Custom text field for Approval

Hi guys,

 

am about to build invoicing process flow with approval process in the way: Shared mailbox->Sharepoint->approval->sharepoint approved->notification to accounting dep. However I would need to add more custom input fields in to the approval process, like Project code, Cost, etc. (filled by approver) So far am using comment field, but I would need more than one of this fields to separate the data. Is there any way how to achieve this?

Hey @Frantisek 

 

Currently adding custom text input fields is not supported within the approvals connector. If you think this should be added as a feature, you can create a post here or upvote already existing ones with a similar use case.

Very frustrated that the "Solved! Go to Solution" is not a solution at all, but just admitting that this very desirable feature is not available. I found another feature request for this that is pushing three and a half years of "Under Review" by Microsoft. I mean, come on.
