How to display a column in a view list with the name of the last approver

Hello again,

I am looking for a way to have a column in my view with the name of the user whom approved and published the document. Currently when the document is approved, the SharePoint shows "System Account". I didn't find a way to show the real approver's name instead the "System Account", so I thought a work around which is to create another column with the proper user name which did approve the document to be published.

Did anyone find a way to do it that way?

If i understand correctly, you are using SharePoint Approval Workflow for this purpose. if yes, then you can follow below steps to achieve this-

1.) Create a new Column in doc library.

2.) Create another designer workflow, use workflow action to query associated Task list "Assigned To" column, retriev the value and update in new column.

Hope it helps.
