Reproducing the Issue

  1. The first approver sends the requisition to the next step for approval.
  2. The second approver views the requisition and wants to send it back to the first approver for further investigation. But there is no way to send it back to previous approver.

  1. Click Admin Center
  2. Go to Form Template Settings.
  3. Click Form Templates
  4. Click the template name where you want to enable the settings
  5. Find and check the box 'Enable form routing to previous step'. Save the changes by clicking Update Form Template.
