Is there way to add a comment box under the Choose Approver Manually in Approval process. Choose Approver Manually

This way for every stage in opportunity can have a separate Request or Note attached to that , and maybe send it through email . Even not email but some how see the attached comments .... Notes and Attachments will show all but this way I want to send it to specific stage

  • When you begin doing things in this manner, you begin to lose the benefits of SF automation. It can leave appearance that someone is "manager shopping" to obtain approvals. – crmprogdev Feb 22 '15 at 17:28
  • @crmprogdev just need to attach a short description why they are asking for approval if its needed – Metawaa Feb 23 '15 at 16:56

The Success Community Idea: Submit for Approval with Comments is the feature you're looking for. Its currently listed as under point threshold. I suggest you vote this up if you want to see it considered for platform implementation.

Edit: As for workarounds, other than adding a text field to Opportunity labeled something like Stage_Approval_Request_Comments, I don't know of one. It can be tracked in history if its a plain text field. If you use a large text area, you can't track it's history and would need a separate field for each stage.
