Is there a way on a task report that you can apply a filter to say that the current user needs to approve this task or issue? (Only if they are the current required approver, not if they are still waiting for someone else to approve.)

We struggle with this as well, but have ultimately decided to direct people to their Home screen and filter for approvals.
You may be able to do a Work Item report and get both tasks and issues pending approval to show, but I have been unable to figure out the text mode on that.

Hmm I wonder if this can be edited based on the team the user is in...
For example, my own department seems to be lax on approvals so I would like to filter an existing outstanding approvals report down to just my own department...
