In the OOTB 2007 Approval Workflow, users had the choice whether to allow reassignment of a workflow task and/or whether to allow the approver to request for a change. These options were presented as two checkboxes in the 2007 template. How is the option to disallow these behaviors acheived in the OOTB 2010 version of the Approval Workflow?

Edited: I should have clarified that few end users have access to SharePoint Designer in our environment, so I was looking for a method to allow users to specify this from the UI.

  • In SPD, select the Approval workflow (your copy, rather than the original as advised by Kishork)
  • Click Edit workflow under Customization
  • Click on Approval in the action: Start Approval process on Current Item
  • Uncheck Reassignment and Change Requests under Settings
  • Publish
