2) Approval Notification generated for Supervisor
3) Notification will remain in supervisor Queue till Tuesday 8 am

Hi,

You need to do the following steps:

1) Before the notification, include a custom function activity to work out when the notification should time out.
2) Store the result of that calculation in a numeric item attribute.
3) Modify the notification activity in the process so that it has a timeout, and use the item attribute as the timeout

When the process runs, the notification will now timeout for the period calculated in the activity.

HTH.
