How To Approve an Approval Request on Someone’s Behalf

Approvals in Flare are used to ensure that certain changes applied to employee profiles such as salary changes, job title changes, or leave requests go through an approval process before the change takes effect.

For every approval request, there's a designated approver who needs to allow the change. However, in some cases, approvers may not available to sign off on an approval.
