Reporting a approval process workarounds

The problem that I'm trying to workaround is that we cannot report on pending approvals.  I've seen the recommendation that we update records on the object that is being routed in the action that executes after each step - however this doesn't work when the step is for parallel approvals.  I haven't been able to find an object I can attach a trigger to that would fire after each person approval.  At the end of the day I need to be able to product a report of who needs to approve what (I am aware that each person will see what they need to approve on their homepage, I need others to be able to pull a report on all the pending approvals).


Any ideas?




There is a built-in report under "Administrative Reports" called "All Pending Approval Requests". It sounds like what you're looking for.
