Admin Actions

In an ideal approval situation, only the assigned approval authority approves the request. However, Admins have the authority to approve a request on behalf of an approver at each stage of the approval process.


Whenever the approval status is pending a particular approval, the admin can approve, reject or notify the approver.


Approve on behalf of an approver -


  1. If approver one is pending, and admin approves

    1. Admin gets added as a new approver after approver 1, and the status will be “Approved on behalf of approver 1.”

    2. Approval update and action required notifications for approver 2, admins, and requestee will get triggered accordingly.

  2. The same logic holds for the rest of the approvers.
