Multiple Approver for Leave Application


We have use case where a leave application can be approved by more than one leave approver. As of now in ERPNext i can assign single leave approver. Is there any way to assign multiple approver?

Hi, are you talking about assigning multiple Leave Approvers to an Employee? In that case, you can already do that.

However, if that’s not the case, help me understand your query properly

At the screenshot attached , i already added 2 approvers( AP1, AP2). But while applying leave i can select only one approver only. Lets say i have selected AP1

For some reason if that approver is not available, if AP2 tries to approve leaves the i get following message

“Only the selected Leave Approver can submit this Leave Application”.

Instead of this message coming, I am expecting it to be approved since AP2 is alos added in approver list,

I see the issue.

The way this works is, you can have multiple Leave Approvers assigned to an Employee, however, a Leave Application can have only one Leave Approver. In case you want another Leave Approver to be able to approve of a Leave Application, you can change the Leave Approver from the form.

I hope that makes sense :slight_smile:

Thanks but is there any way i can automate that?

Currently, there isn’t a way to do that, sorry.

Hi @sunilatrb,
You can achieve through the “Work-flow” in ERPNEXT please see this link
