Assigning Approver Delegates

When managers and other decision-makers are out of the office, you can make others "Approver Delegates" for those people. In EmpowerID, Approver Delegates are people who can approve and deny requests on behalf of another

The Approver Delegate is used in conjunction with the Out Of Office property for a person. To enable Approver Delegation to occur, you set Out Of Office to true on the person for whom the delegation will occur. You can set this property by selecting the Advanced tab when editing a person and ticking Out Of Office so that the option is selected.
