I have a custom app with a custom object. I want to have an approval process on the object. Ideally I want to have a lookup field to the user records on the custom object that allows me to select a user as the approver.
However when I look at the approval process I can only select the MANAGER or a custom hierarchy field on the USER record as the approver, I can't seem to select a custom field from the custom object.
Since the creators of these records will not have access to edit user records I would need to get an admin to update them every time one is create to make that work which is crazy.
Any ideas or suggestions appreciated!
