Alternate Approver is NOT able to 'approve' or 'reject' on the approval tab

The Workforce Compensation Alternate approver is not able to approver or reject direct reporting managers on the 'Approval' tab in Workforce Compensation. The alternate approver receives the following error message: "You cannot submit or take an approval action because an alternate approver is defined for 'Manager XYZ'. A person outside of your hierarchy must approve the worksheet of 'Manager XYZ' first.

The alternate approver must be able to switch to the worksheet of the worksheet manager that he/she is an alternate approver for then mark direct reporting managers as either 'approved' or 'return for correction' on behalf of the worksheet manager. The alternate approver is not able to approve or reject on behalf of the worksheet manager. The alternate approver needs to be able to approve/reject from the approval tab b/c that is where the details of making the approval decision reside.

If the alternate approver simply hits 'submit', and the plan allows you to submit at any time, then all direct managers are marked as 'Approved by the alternate approver'.

Is there this type of functionality planned for the future?
