Script repository

Delegate approvals to assistants and secretaries

The script allows delegating the operations a user needs to approve to their assistants or secretaries. When run, the script adds a user's assistant or secretary as an additional approver of all pending requests that the user can approve.

To delegate approval requests, create a custom command that runs the script and run it on the user or users whose requests you want to delegate. To add the script to your command, use the Run a program or PowerShell script action.


  • $newApproverDNProperty - Specifies the property that contains the subtitle approver. Use assistant or secretary.
