You configure custom properties that you want to add to the approval form to allow the approver to modify the value.

For example, for a virtual machine approval, add VMware.VirtualCenter.Folder if you want to allow the approver to specify the folder to which the machine is added in vCenter Server.

You can also add a custom property that is specific to this approval policy form.

To select system properties, select Administration > Approval Polices. Click New. Select the policy type and click OK. On the Pre Approval or Post Approval tab, click the New icon (Add Level) and click the Custom Properties tab.
