As a Policy Admin, you can choose to enforce your approval workflow by going to Settings > Policies > Group [Policy Name] > People > Approval Mode

  • When this setting is disabled, submitters and approvers will have the option to override their "Submits to" and "Approves to" settings by manually re-writing the email address that populates when they submit or approve and forward reports.
  • When enabled (which is the default setting for a new policy), submitters and approvers must adhere to the set approval workflow (recommended). This setting does not apply to Policy Admins, who are free to submit outside of this workflow
