While we currently allow reporting on approvals that are in flight and who the approval is waiting on we do not have a good way to report on the entire process of the task. That said this has been escalated as an enhancement and we are looking at when we can add this functionality. It is not yet currently scheduled for a release.
I would like to request that you please log your own ER through the support connect portal and add the details of what are the important fields to be added on the report for your company.This way we can include your company requirements in our assessment of the new reporting functionality.

We have a similar requirement, specifically a report which shows when an approvable item was deleted. Our Customer Administrators can override approvals, we are looking at ways to develop a report that lists the approvables the have been overwritten (or deleted).
Example from a Requisition History
Approver Jane Doe has been deleted from the approval chain
A report listing all these exceptions would be ideal.
If anyone has any ideas please let me know, thank you,
