So I understand that you are able to view records of the people that are 'under' you in the role hierarchy. That's quite useful, so we have laid out a tree and properly assigned the users.
Now the next step is some approval processes, for which I ticked the box that says 'use manager for approval'. However, when submitting for approval it complains that the Manager field on the User object is empty. And it is.
Yet, I would expect that when I have a role hierarchy (with only one user appointed to every position) it could figure out the manager automatically, right?
Is there a way to couple the role hierarchy and the Manager field, so that the manager in the role hierarchy is also the Manager on the User object?
(I understand that there can be multiple people on the same role, or maybe horizontal managers instead of vertical, complicating things, but still...)
