- This article explains how to manage & modify a Workflow that is in progress
- We have a few Workflow requests that need to have certain approvers reassigned/removed or an extra approver added, and rather than assign Proxy permission or re-raise the request again, is there a way to change the Workflow Approver of different Workflow steps?
