Personnel number, Basically he is a director of the company who doesn't want to
and allow his Assitant to do it on his behalf with out him receiving the

Currently we are following the below process

Trip created by Employee --> Checked and Approved by Manager --> If
not approved by 5 days, it will go to Manager's Manager (Senior level).

Now for this specific case, we need an exception process as below, where we
need to deactivate the Workflow only for Director, if not possible then the
trip's Wrokflow can be generated as below.

Trip created by Director --> Approved by Assistant.

Please guide me.

    You can use a standard functionnality in workflow which is substitution/delegation. The director can delegate for a specific task (trip approval) and for a period of time to another user.

    So he will delegates to his assistant and the assistant will do the validation on his behalf.

    It is a common requirement and delegation is often used for high level managers.

      The assistant will be defined as delegate of the director so it will works.

      The director will still receive an email, it depends on how emails are sent (directly in workflow? via standard program RSWUWFML2 ? via specific Zreport ?...).

      Easiest way is to make an email rule in his outlook, notes... to automatically ignores t&e approval mails.
