(question moved into AR System community)
Can you elaborate a bit more please
Created a form using the Request Definition feature. There are multiple inputs (which I call fields). Some of the response types are pick lists and/or lookups. When the end user submits a service request they fill-in the input fields created. Based on the information enter by the end user, I would like to be able to control the assignment of approval step process.
If the end user make a choice of "This is a grant Funded Position" I would like the approval process to go through the Grant's Budget Analyst.
If the end user make a choice of "Something Other than a Grant Position" I would like the approval process to go through the regular Budget Analyst.
Looks you are using Standard Service Requests. check below article which has couple of links and info about approvals
What you need to do is you have to create a hidden text field and use Action functionality to set this field with the approver details on the basis of menu choice and then you can map this field down to z1D_Approver as described in above link. below link has info regarding use of Actions
