How can I report on records that have been submitted for approval?

Knowledge Article Number 000228450
Description Is there a way to filter on records that have been submitted for approval?
Resolution Using Out of box functionality there is no way to filter on records submitted for approval. However using a custom checkbox field and the immediate approval action it is possible to get the field checked

This is how it can be achieved
 
1. Choose an object in which you want to track the records submitted for approval
2. Create a custom field and label it with a meaningful name example - “Submitted for approval”
3. While configuring the approval process, choose a “Field update” in the Initial submission action
4. Choose the field “Submitted for approval” and update the field to TRUE
4. Build a report on the object 
5. Filter the report on the field “Submitted for approval” equals “TRUE”

This report will give all the records (of the particular object) that have been submitted for approval
