Restriction on next approver - Approval Process




I need to restrict the current user from choosing himself as the next approver in the approval process when he submits a record for approval. Please Help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!








How about a validation rule? If the user chosen is the owner of the record, display an error message.


Is it possible to have a validation rule on the next approver field??


I am presuming you have the Next Approver field as a look up on user. On the definition detail page, you can create a Validation Rule or you can put a Lookup Filter with the filter criteria Next Approver NOT EQUAL TO CurrentUser.


Hope this helps.  




Do automatic approval & before that design Org. hierarchy
