Hey Daniel- apologies for the delay. Our product managers are working on reviewing a large number of Ideas at the moment so, I'm a tad bit behind on getting the updates posted to the Ideas.
I just reached out to see where they are with this particular Idea and I will post their update once I have that info. Thanks for your patience.

Minimally, to be able to resolve most issues right away, we'd love the option to just be able to tell the Approval Process to not lock a record during approval. I can understand the reasoning behind why the record is locked as approvers may need to look at a moment-in-time snapshot of when the approval was submitted, but in our case, and I can bet many others', that snapshot is not necessary in order for the approvers to determine the next step.
The fact that an admin CAN unlock a record manually in the UI tells me that locking a record isn't a requirement for a record to remain in approval.
