I am setting up a task process where a request is submitted to an approver. Once approved the accounting dept is assigned a task. In situations where the dollar amount is low enough, I want approver and accounting to get the task at the
same time so accounting can start the ball rolling. I have successfully set this up by assiging tasks in parallel. What I want to do is that if the approver then rejects the task, i want accounting to get a notice to cancel the accounting task
and delete any work they've started.
I can get it to work, but it is dependent on both the approval task and the accounting task being finished. When the approver task is rejected, nothing happens until the accounting task in the same parallel block is completed. As soon as I mark
that as completed, I immediately get the message to cancel. I would like accounting to get a message to cancel as soon as the approver rejects, regardless if accounting has started or not.
It seems to get the task issued simultaneously I need the parallel, but I can't evaluate and use the approver response until everything in the parallel block is done. Any ideas on how I could do this?
Using SPD 2010.
