Defer an Approval

I would like to have the function to Defer/Redirect an Approval (on occasion) to another authority. What is the recommended way to add a redirection to such an Approval flow? TIA.

Hi!

You mean reassign an approval request?

Hope this helps

Yes sorry, "Reassign" would be the correct terminology. Is it possible to add this functionality to the Approval email that is sent. Currently there is only appears to be the "Approve" or "Reject" option? 

Mmmm.... I understand your requirement now.

I am afraid I've just seen the option to reassign through the Approvals web interface

I haven't found a way to reassign from the Adaptive Card that is sent via email, but more than happy to see if someone else can point us to the right direction

Hope this helps

Hi again

I'm just thinking on a workaround via Custom responses, so you can add a third option 'REassign' and use the Comments to input a new email address. As far as I remember 'Custom responses' is a premium feature, not sure if you can access it
