Reimbursement request notification not found in approver UWL or Creation one more approver in UWL

Hi Team,

After applying Reimbursement (Medical, LTA for India) request from ESS choosing Approver / Processor another employee, it shows reimbursement request sent to approver. There are only one Approver to approve the entire organization.

We would like to create one more approver in UWL, who can approve the same reimbursement if one approval is absent or leave.

Please guide us!

Thank you,

    Hi Rakesh

    The scenario what you are trying to achieve can be done using the Substitution feature available in UWL. Refer to the below documents to know more about the Substitution Rule in UWL.
