How to send approval requests from an org-wide email Address?

For a normal Email Task (workflow rule), you can specify that the sender is an org-wide email address.

We need to be able to set this for the Approval Request Notification template on an Approval Process.

 

How do I accomplish this?  It is critical to our business that the submitters of the request DO NOT have their name and email on the notification.

Hi , 


Try creating an "Organization-Wide Address" (an email address). You'll have to prove that this mailbox is accessible for you (SF will send an email with link that has to be clicked within 72h).

Then, in the approval process start defining / reusing an email alert...

Hi Ashish, thanks for your reply.  Unfortunately the Approval Notification Template is not like a regular Email Alert.  For Approval Notification Template, there is no opportunity to specify the Sender and Recipients.

Hi , 


You can have the Data Binding like merge fields to get the Current Record's  Contact or Lead details.

 We can also have the relationship objects fields. 

Explain a bit more if i am not in the right direction. 


Regards,
Ashish

It's not something you can specify with merge fields, unfortunately, it is filled in automatically by the approval process

Hi , 


Are you using a standard approval process or customized one?

We can still parse the values entered by the user in the controller.
