SharePoint Approval Workflow
Posted on 2012-08-24
I have created a SharePoint Workflow which is set to start an Approval process when an item is created. This obviously gives our users the option to approve or reject a document.
What I am looking to know is if it is possible to set a loop on the item rather than ending the Workflow if it is Rejected. For example if the item is Rejected the Workflow waits for the Item Version to change (as the changes where made as requested by the approver) and it then resubmits the document for Approval.
I need to be able to set a number of Rejections before the Workflow ends. For example every time the Document is Rejected the Workflow waits for the Version to change and then sends it back for Approval up to 5 times before the Workflow ends - this allows for changes to the document, typos etc.
This sounds quite easy to do but I don't see any obvious way to specify a Rejection Limit on the Workflow as I'm quite new to SharePoint Designer and Workflows etc.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
