In SharePoint Designer 2010, I have a workflow that has within it an Approval Process. The Approval is for a Supply Request and there is currently one tier that provides approval. What I want to do is add a condition within the Approval workflow so that if the Total Estimated Cost is >= $5,000.00, it should go to an additional tier of approval. I have a variable (var_TEC) that contains the Total Estimated Cost. Is there a straight forward method to accomplish this?
Also, how would I configure the Approval Process to ensure that one of the tiers has veto power over the other? In the past I have created Approval processes that end up more like a majority vote and I have not figured out how to make the final Tier’s approval choice that final verdict.
Thanks in advance for the assistance!

Because we cannot add another Start Approval Process action within a Start Approval Process action no matter in edit single task or overall task, we can only create the workflow similar like this:
If var_TEC >= 500000,
Stat approval process to first level approvers and additional tier of approvers.
Start approval process to first level approvers.
Or like this:
Start Approval Process to first level approvers,
If var_TEC >= 500000, Stat approval process to additional tier of approvers.
If you need the veto power over the other, please go to
“ Change the behavior of single task”, under “When a Task completes” and blow “If current task: Outcome equal to Approved”, add
If Current Task: Assigned To equals (ignoring case) high level approver’s account,
Set Variable: IsItemApproved to Yes
End Task Process,
Else Log … (leave the default action)
Sometimes, we can also modify the complete conditions in “Change the completion conditions for this task process” of the approval task, and replace the condition: If Task Process Results: Number of Approved equals Task Process: Completed Task Count to your condition.Thanks & Regards,
