I used steps on this site to create a approval vacation workflow:


I am however being asked to approve twice. Not sure why! The attached document has screen shots of my workflow and whats going on. Please look at page 2 of the word document for screen shots of approval screens.

I think somebody familiar with approval workflows will be able to understand and explain whats going on.

Sharepoint experts please take a look.

Thanks! Solved

Can you help me with another related question I just posted.

Please take a look. Its about reducing the number of approval steps. The user right now has to go through 3 steps before they actually approve the vacation request. I want them to get to the approval screen directly or something that makes their life easier.
