Add Custom Fields to the Approval Form

Hi team,


So here is the thing: when we approve something more frequently than we thought we need more information being handled by the approver that outlines the approval context.


Some examples

  • When you require an approval that require to assign a resource
  • When you need to restrict the approval to a condition or parameter
  • To avoid re-start an approval process because the object of approval is immutable 

So, i.e. if I could modify and retrive more information (other than the comments and Approve/Reject flag) such Persons, Numbers, Option Selection, etc. I could ask for approval and yet other information valuable to the process.


Is it possible for you guys add support to modify / custom fields to the approval form?


Thanks, Ed.

This feature would be really useful.

ABSOLUTELY need the option to CHANGE TEXT on Approve and Reject buttons.

      We may want to have a 'please revise and re-submit button' or Satisfied / Dissatisfied buttons.


ABSOLUTELY need the option to alter the NUMBER of buttons on approvals.

      We may want to have 3 or 4 buttons for approvers to select from.  There could be 4 options with switch case programming for each condition.

I agree.  If we needed a secondary approval if over a certain $$ amount then allow for the approver to send it to another person for another approval.

I need to gather additional setup details as part of the Approval process, which are then reported back to the Requester.  The ability to add custom fields to the Approval E-mail is absolutely needed.
