    The approval or review request is removed and the approver receives a notification that their approval is no longer needed. Their approval-related share access is also removed.

  4. (Optional) To demote an approver to a reviewer rather than remove them entirely, uncheck the Approver checkbox in line with their name.

  5. Repeat the previous step to remove any additional approvers or reviewers.
