Is it possible to update a "Review Activity" approver in an SCSM "task" via powershell?

Thanks for the reply.  First let me tell you our issue.

Prior to SP1 we had "change initiators" create a change request and update the "review activities" (that were placed there by the template they opened) and the manual activities.  They would update them with the description, dates and their manager's or another manager's name for approval.

Well, SP1 killed us!  A change inititator can no longer update a "review activity".

So we are quite stuck because we need the fixes in SP1, but SP1 isn't just a set of "fixes" it changes the functionality of the application!

So we would like to, if possible, have the change inititator open a pre-existing review activity(that came from the template) and select a task that will populate the review activity with their manager.  Even if we have to hardcode the manager's name and have one task for each manager, we can live with that.

So to answer your question, which ever is easier.  We can add a vote, that may make the most sense and we would just leave the template with the review activity empty.

Thanks again for your help.
