    You can achieve this by using Skip to page Conditions on your multiple pages form.

    User guide: How-to-Skip-Pages-Using-Conditional-Logic

    In your case, you will assign a code to the specific approver wherein they will only have access to the pages in the form that the code used was assigned with.

    Simply put, different code provides different access to pages in the form. The Conditions will work in same manner even when the approver is in edit mode using the edit link.

    Let us know if you need further assistance.

    The Approver will have to know first hand what code is assigned to them. You can do it via conditional email as well. This way they will be the only one that knows the specific code.

    User guide: How-to-Send-Email-Based-on-User-s-Answer

     I will create a demo form also. I'll be back shortly.

    Please test my form https://www.jotformpro.com/72118021660950

    To test, select a Dept and provide your actual email so that you can receive the approver code via your email.

    Let us know if you have question on how it works.
