Approvals v2: Delegate approvals

It would be helpful to be able to select one or more person(s) where you can delegate approvals to. For people on vacation it would be very handy to select someone to take care of their approvals when they are on vacation.

Thanks for the suggestion, this is a good idea.

I need this too. The 'approvals' action is hampered by a few small items - lack of delegates, lack of triggers to end the approval (say, after 5 days).

There are workarounds for both.

Delegates - you can assign the flow to multiple people (one of them being a generic account such as an admin who can login to approve stuck approvals).

End Approval - can write a parallel flow to expire in, say, 5 days. But even this has limits as you can't add parallel flows inside loops/switch statements.

This would be another welcome feature of Flow Approvals serving many corprate scenarios.

 

It also intersects with another similar idea "Approvals - ability to turn off reassignment"

It would be great if this can be set by an admin as well (in case the approver has forgotten).

 

I do hope this gets implemented soon. It would save us a lot of work of finding a workaround for this.
