    Invoice 'Claimed' in Approval Workflow changes to unclaimed after 3 days
    When a member of an approval group claimes an invoice, it returns to an unclaimed status after 3 days. Can this be modified?

    We have several approval groups set up in workflow where a single member of the group 'claims' invoices to work.  If the approval is not completed in 3 days, the invoice returns to the entire approval group as unclaimed.  This is an issue for invoices that are claimed on Friday and not approved.  They return to unclaimed status on Monday. Can this timeframe be modified?  I have not been able to find documentation about where/how to modify the claim period.

      Check your Expiration settings in BPM.  See attached screen print.

      Thanks, Becky.  We have tested this in the past and it hasn't made a difference.  Currently the setting is blank.  I will retest in our test environment and see if I can make this work.
