Cannot select existing Email Alert for Orders object on Approval Process or Workflow Rule

Knowledge Article Number 000199623
Description User has created an Email Alert for the Order object. They are creating an approval process or Workflow Rule and are unable to select the Email Alert when choosing "Add Existing" button. The existing Email Alert does not appear as an available selection.
Resolution This is due to the "Record Owner" being the recipient. The Orders object is one of the few object that does not have the "Record Owner" field, so this Email Alert is not technically valid. Remove the Record Owner as the recipient and replace it with something else. The Email Alert should now be visible to select for the Approval Process or Workflow.
