2476175 - "Additional Manager" role usage within Workflows


  • When changing approvers for a workflow that is using the additional manager role, it can be observed that there is no employee name shown and simply shows "additional manager" as the approver.
  • When doing an adhoc report against workflow data, you will see that the employee name/id is blank for the additional manager step.
  •  Please note that this Knowledge base is purely meant to discuss "additional manager" role and not other roles that are available. For more general info on other roles I suggest to check out the link provided under "see Also section of this kbase.
