Approval sharing enables you to have all of your approval tasks automatically forwarded to another approver for a period of time, in case you're unable to approve documents yourself during that period. The other approver will then act as your substitute until you're available again.
There are two types of approval sharing:
- The kind that's done by admins on behalf of other users (for any user and any purpose)
- The kind you do yourself when you're out of office
Both kinds have to be set up every time you're unavailable. For more information and details on how to do this, see Setting up Approval Sharing.
