Can I use APEX to assign Approvers?


So I want to allocate a number of Approvers to the Opportunity based on parameters like value.  Right now we have 15 user lookups and we populate these with apex then the approval rules use related user.  I now have a problem in that we have hit our limit of lookups on the Opportunity object - 30.  So I want to move the Approval away from User lookups / related users to a pure APEX method.  


I want to use unanymous Approval and I want to choose a different number of Approvers.


So low value opportunities might only require 3 Approvers.  Massive opportunities might need 10 Approvers.


Interesting post...

Thanks Fredrick.

Did you manage to resolve your issue in the end?

I've still got a load of User Lookup fields on the object which I hard code into the Approval rule step via the Web based UI.
