People Picker in a Workflow

When an item is approved,  I would like a manager to assign multiple users to that item and then email those users.

How do you get a People Picker as an initiation variable in a SharePoint Designer Workflow?

Approve and assigning the users are sequence activities? Or Manager can open the site and assign the users after the item got approved?

If i'm wrong please provide sequence of steps what you are doing now..

Thanks,

Ideally I would like the approvers to assign people when they approve the item.

And then I would like the people who are assigned to receive an email.

I don't think I will be using a task list - this will all be done in the item itself.

Upto my knowledge through SPD 2007 workflow you can't assign the users.

Why can't you go this way.?

1. Item created.
2. Send a mail to approvers.
3. Approvers will approve the item (while approving it self they can assign the users. Or You change your logic that once it is approved then Assign to Filed has to enable.. some thing like that..)
4. Once Assign To is done initiate a workflow to send a mail.
5. Assign To users will get a mail.

Thanks,
Rao.
