Reassign Approval - from senders side

Hi All,


Does anyone know if there is a way to re-assign a running approval from the senders side to a custom value. We really need an easy way to just go into sent approvals and reaassign. For example: what happens when somebody is sick and can't sign-in to re-assign and you really need that approval. How do you guys deal with that now? I suppose you could build an elaborate flow which checked for a value and then cancel the approval but afaik you can't cancel an approval mid-flow.

Re: Reassign Approval - from senders side

Hi @HarveyHarpal,


I am afraid that currently it is not possible to reassign approval from sender’s side. I assume that it is a good addition for flow, please submit your request on Flow Ideas Forum:

I will suggest other customers who have the same request to vote your idea at here.


Best regards,
