Goal

Journal approval is enabled and when the users try to delegate or reassign the task to a different user then the functionality works in the same way.
The expectation is that when the task is re-assigned to a new user the final approver name should be that of the new user.
When the journal is delegated the final approver name stamp of the journal should still be the original user to whom the task was assigned.

The result observed is that regardless of using reassignment or delegation the final approver is the new user:

Original Approver FINUSER1 -> Reassign to FINUSER2 -> FINUSER2 approves -> Final approval will be FINUSER2
Original Approver FINUSER1 -> Delegate to FINUSER2 -> FINUSER2 approves -> Final approval will be FINUSER2

What is the difference between reassignment and delegation of journal approval notifications?
