x# Sequential Multiple Approvals - How does the Approver assign the next person?

We have a chain of command that does not follow a guaranteed route up the chain.  There can be up to 10 approvals and each approver needs to manually assign the next approver.  The originator only knows his/her supervisor, not any beyond that.  How can I do this?

Hi @rambrose 


Let me see if I understood correctly, you want to build a flow where an approval is started, the approver then approves that and provide the name of the next one until reaches the end.


Perhaps you could "ask" the approver to provide the email for the next one, using that info you create a loop to do that action until the next approver provided is empty.

I'm new to this, so how do I ask?
