Include Approval Submitted By or Approval Submitter as Notification Recipient

Process Automation

When creating a notification within a Workflow Approval Process, there is no way to designate the user who submitted the approval as a possible recipient. Currently, the only options are the Record Owner, Created By, Last Modified By, and the standard specific User, Public Group, or Role and Subordinates. It would only make perfect sense that the user who submitted the record for approval would like to be notified when/if the record is approved or rejected. It is possible that this is a different user than the one who created, last modified, or owns the record. Please include "Approval Submitter" or "Approval Submitted By" as possible notification recipients.
