SharePoint Content Approval Flow - Can approver edit actual document?

Hello World,

 

I am creating a basic SharePoint Content Approval Flow in which I would like the approver to have the ability to edit/comment on the actual document. I do see that the approver can add comments on the approval response but not on the document itself. Would that be a permission that needs to be set on the document before submission for approval? 

 

Thanks

An approver in a SharePoint Library should have edit access to the document.  So if you add the link to the document in the approval they can open and edit the document, including comments, before they approve the document.  For list items its more difficult because documents are handled as attachments so there is no easy way to link to them for editing.
