How to change approver temporarily for existing expense reports

We have an employee with existing expense reports that have to be approved by a different manager. Is there a way to do this and then switch back to original manager?

Thank you!

hello @CEL22 


An easy way would be to assign a delegate to the current approver to approve and for a certain period.

@CEL22 if you have access to the Company Administration screen, you can certainly update a user's profile to assign a new approver for a temporary period of time then switch the approver back if necessary.


I wouldn't recommend using the Approving Delegate option because if the current approver has other employees that submit to them, the delegate would get approval email notifications when all those employees submit reports. You wouldn't want the delegate to think they need to approve those other reports. Just my opinion, but you do have a couple of options.

Thank you,
