We have a custom object Employee. Created a lookup field with Employee object (Self - lookup) called as Manager. Whenever submit to approval Manager should be approve. But manager unable to approve because its not a user. Ex:- we have a 2 records like developer and Team Lead. Team Lead Should be approve of Developer.

    Your question is very unclear. Don't understand what are you trying to achieve? – Ricky Aug 26 '15 at 17:05

    From what I am understanding you have set the "Manager" field as the approver ?? If so this will not work as the field is not a User, what you can do is create another field(hidden if you preferred) and write a workflow maybe to populate the record Owner's user name and use that field to Approve your records. – Sanjay Aug 26 '15 at 17:28

Here is some documentation on approvals in salesforce https://help.salesforce.com/HTViewHelpDoc?id=approvals_creating_approval_processes.htm . Note that approvers must be Salesforce users to your org. Only on the user object can you set a special user Hierarchical Relationship field type. You can add more fields of this type on the user object to meet your needs, but all the users must be active salesforce users.
