Here is the scenario:
1. We are using the Absence and Vacation Schedule Application Template from MS.
2. For right now, I need to be able to have a group (preferably an AD group) that has the ability to submit a leave request but NOT approve.
3. For right now, I need to be able to have a group (preferably an AD group) that has the ability to approve the pending requests.
Users are currently able to submit a request but no matter which group I add an “approver” to, they cannot use the built-in approvereject.aspx page to approve the item. I’ve tried giving the AD group Contribute permissions as well as an individual user contribute permission (to both the Absences list and site) with no success.
I have played with it until I’m probably looking right over something obvious but I’ve hit a brick wall with this.
After I clear this hurdle, I’ll post a question on how to develop a multipart approval process and email notifications.
Thanks in advance!
