SharePoint Designer Approval Workflow
Posted on 2011-02-15
I need to create a workflow to approve leave plans in a calendar list. Below is the scenario...
Process- (One approver for each process (I've about 10 processes)
Start Date - (Leave Start Date)
End Date - (Leave End Date)
Description - (Reason for Leave)
Leave State - (Tentative, Actual)
All the employees plan their leaves tentatively for the entire year in a spreadsheet & upload the details on to a list and view it as a calendar.
This allows us to see the periods where too many individuals planning to take off, and thereby plan the workflow accordingly
To keep the plan upto date, once in every month, employees would review their leave plans for that specific month and confirm the leaves as "actual", if not they would change the "tentative" dates as required.
What I'm looking is to create a workflow...
1) Which would assign a workflow task to the respective process lead to approve or reject, whenever there is a change or new item created in the list.
2) Workflow should shoot out an email to the employee letting them know the approval status with some comments.
