Leave Request - How to allow requester to choose approver

Hi, I'm creating an annual leave/holiday request database.

 

I have created a sharepoint list where staff can add their leave which will prompt an email to managers:

 

1. When a new item is created

2. Get my profile

3. Send email with options

4. Condition

 

Everything works fine, however, I am stuck on step three as I want the requestor to choose who to email for approval. Is there a way to do this? Unfortunately, we can't use the 'Get Manager' function as it does not seem to be set up properly and sometimes these requests need to go to multiple people.

 

I would really appreciate some help

Hello @Afifa ,

I think that the easiest way would be to add another column to the SharePoint list: mandatory people picker column where users would enter their manager/approver. Then you could send the email to the user in that column.
