Forward To functionality is used to get approval from a person who is either out side of approval hierarchy or some times to a person who is withing hierarchy too.
Person name is required for using Forward/Approve and Forward for system to know whom you need approval from.
Ex : P1 has Approval limit $10,000, P2 has Approal limit $100,000 and P3 has Approval limit of $99,000,000
In this case , lets assume there is a PO for $15,000, reached P2 for approval.
We know that when P2 approves it, because of approval limit it gets approved at his level, in case if P2 wants this PO should also need approval from P3, he need to select P3 and do Approve and Forward ( this means P2 is approving it and requesting P3 to have final approval ).
Lets say there is another Person P4 who is not in hierarchy ( ex : P4 is Technical Manager of the material requested ), if you P2 feels this PO Should be approved by P4, he can do Approve and Forward and select P4.
Hope this helps.
Thanks for reply ...
Now, as per your exmple P3 is in position hierarchy and P2 is his subordinate.
Still , is it require to select the person named P3 when P2 click the "approve & forward" button.
Yes, you need to select if you need explicit approval from P3.
