A transaction that requires multi-level approval has been approved by one of the approvers. However, the transaction has to be edited. Can I edit the transaction?

Yes, you can edit a transaction that has been approved by a previous approver in the multi-level approval hierarchy. However, if you edit the approved transaction, the previous approvals for the transaction will become invalid. Instead, you can convert the transaction to the Draft status, make the necessary changes, and then resubmit it for approval. However, this is not recommended as editing transactions after approval may cause confusion among users as the changes won’t be approved by everyone.

To prevent this, it’s better to convert the transaction to the Draft status before making edits. This ensures all users approve the changes, avoiding confusion and simplifying the process.
