If a user manager is on vacation, how can I delegate approval tasks to the managers manager ?

Delegation can for example be timebased (not answered within 2 days) or based on a custom attribute value.

Just guide me to documentation on this issue. Do not describe a solution.

Unfortunately, there is no documentation regarding delegation of approval requests. To delegate approvals to a user manager a PowerShell script executed in a Custom Command or Scheduled Task can be used. For example of the script, have a look at the following page from our repository: https://www.adaxes.com/script-repository/delegate-approvals-to-assistants-and-secretaries-s389.htm.

For example, to delegate all pending approval requests to a manager of a user manager if a custom Boolean attribute is set to True, you can create a Scheduled Task executing the mentioned above script. The script will be executed if the target user is a manager (the Direct Reports property is not empty), the user has a manager (the Manager property is not empty) and the CustomAttributeBoolean1 property is set to True. Finally, the Scheduled Task configuration will look like the following: image.png Should you have any questions or need clarifications, please, provide us with all the possible details regarding the desired behavior and we will get back to you with instructions.

Adaxes seems to want to use the Manager field to specify who gets approval confirmation emails. What do you do about a user without a manager, such as the CEO? Let's assume they're not tech saavy, and the IT department needs to confirm their requests.
