You can configure the Approval activity so that the approver is requested to supply certain properties of the object when performing the approval task. Suppose the creation of a user is submitted for approval. The approver may be requested to supply certain properties of the user in addition to the the properties specified in the creation request. Thus, you may configure the Approval activity to prompt the approver to specify the mailbox database for the mailbox of the user to be created.
To configure request for additional information
- Go to the Request for information tab in the Properties dialog box for the Approval activity.
- Add the desired properties to the Request the approver to supply or change these properties list.
When performing the approval task, the approver will be prompted to supply or change the properties presented in that list. The approver can provide the requested information in the Approval section of the Web Interface, under the Supply or change the following properties heading on the Object Properties tab of the Approval Task page. The tab also displays an instruction specified by the Approval activity. You can view or change the instruction text on the Request for information tab in the Properties dialog box for the Approval activity, under the Show this instruction to the approver heading.
