OOB Approval Process

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 25, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

When i use the Approval Workflow, and assign it to an AD group.  There is only one task created with the AD Group.  How can i get it to create individual tasks for each person in the AD Group?  Thank you for your help!

Workflow Approval Process

I have created a workflow for approval of a list.  I have listed two persons who can approve/reject and item.  My intent was to have either person be the appover.  Sharepoint apparently see's it differently; they need both persons to approve before the item can be finalized as either rejected or approved.  Is there a way to make it so that one of two people listed can approve a partiuclar workflow process??????   Thanks in advance, and yes, I am very, very new at this!

Document control with approval process

I need a mechanism to upload documents, in which has up to 12 different approval levels, dependant on value and cannot be escalated until the lower level's approve.  I need the ability to send email notification that a document is pending their approval as well as the ability to see at any given moment, where the document is in the approval cycle.

Workflow Approval Process not setting item's Approval Status



I've been pounding my head against the desk about this all afternoon.  I have a simple workflow attached to a document library that runs on item creation.  All it does is start the approval process on the current item and emails me and a few other people a task (in parallel).  I have another workflow attached to the document library that runs on modify and it looks to see what the Approval Status of the Current Item is.  If the Approval Status is Approved, the workflow copies the item to another library then deletes the current item.  Same with rejected (only sends it to another library).  Pending does nothing.  I modified the Completed step in the approval workflow to modify the item (to make sure the second workflow triggers)

All that works except, no matter what the Approval Status is alway Approved!  Even when first create the item and run the approval process, the item comes out as approved.  I even explicately set the Approval Status to Pending at the beginning of the first WF, but right after that, the item reverts back to being Approved.  How do I make the item be Pending until everyone has responded to the approval task?  I kinda thought that was the default procedure...


Document Approval Process in SharePoint Foundation



I am currently analyzing the workflow capabilities available in SharePoint Foundation (free version).  One of the business needs my company has is that they would like to be able to submit a document that goes through an approval process.  For examples user1 adds the document then next another user or multiple users are sent an email stating that they need to go into SharePoint and approve this document, then it might be routed for more approval, etc.  My question is does the version I am currently working with support the use of an "approval" type workflow?  Do I need to upgrade to the pay version?  Thanks in advance.

TFS approval process for 'Custom List'


I created 'Custom List' at TFS Sharepoint portal and i want to attach workflow to approve the created item. Can someone pls suggest me

1. Is there any available workflow template to download and attached to Custom List.

2. The approval process is 2 step.

    2.1. User creates or initiates the form.

    2.2. Supervisor must approve or reject the form.

    2.3. If Supervisor approved, Manager has to approve or reject the form.


I appreciate if someone can suggest me for the workflow template or guide to build the code.




Parallel Block with Start Approval Process



When I put two "Start Approval Process" in a parallel block in SharePoint Designer, i always receive the following message message when I try to close one of the task generated:

Due to heavy load, the latest workflow operation has been queued. It will attempt to resume at a later time

I tried the same workflow on several different environments.

 Any ideas?

ASP.NET Architecture - ASP.NET Worker Process - HTTP Pipleline - Http Modules and Handlers

"ASP.NET is a powerful platform for building Web applications, that provides a tremendous amount of flexibility and power for building just about any kind of Web application. Most people are familiar only with the high level frameworks like WebForms and WebServices which sit at the very top level of the ASP.NET hierarchy. In this article I'll describe the lower level aspects of ASP.NET and explain how requests move from Web Server to the ASP.NET runtime and then through the ASP.NET Http Pipeline to process requests.

Test Run: The Analytic Hierarchy Process


Most software testing takes place at a relatively low level. Testing an application's individual methods for functional correctness is one example. However, some important testing must take place at a very high level-for example, determining if a current build is significantly better overall than a previous build.

Around the Horn: Engineer a Distributed System Using .NET Remoting for Process Intensive Analysis


Before the Microsoft .NET Framework, creating a distributed cluster of computers to perform scientific analysis was expensive in terms of hardware, programming and debugging time, and maintenance. You had to purchase expensive servers, spend time debugging network communication, design a distributed system completely different from a system deployed locally, and maintain a melting pot of error handling, data acquisition, networking, and analysis code. In this article, the author shows you how he was able to engineer a distributed computing system in C# to perform analysis of real-world data continuously acquired at high sampling rates, thanks to the .NET Framework.
