Hi,

 

You can do following implementation.

 

  1. Create a Custom field of type user named as "Next Approver".
  2. While setting up approval process tell to pick next approver value from this field.
  3. In Entry criteria ensure that this fiel is not blank.
  4. Write a validation rule on this field that record creator cannot be same as field "Next Approver"

 

I hope this will help you.

Him,

 

While creating the Approval process we get option to select the Next approver manually, From field or Users Manager.

 

If you are the System Admin then u can create record, submit for approval and approve.

 

However in your case, you can choose to select from field. And write Validation rule that creator cannot be set as approver in that field.

 

There are lots of way !!!
