Create a approval-Workflow with parallel, optional, approvals, Sharepoint 2007 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hey.

    This is for SharePoint 2007.

    Im having difficulties solving this problem.

    Im want to make a approval workflow for a document. The first two steps a sequential with one approver on each step by "Collect data from user"-funktion. At the third step I want to make a parallel approval, C-D-E, that is also optional, ie. 0-3 people could be chosen to approve a document they will all get the approval-message at the same time. If one of them rejects the document the workflow will end. If only (C) & (D) "have user" and both approve the workflow will continue to F.

                                     A
                                     |
                                     B
                                    /|\
                                  /  |  \
                               (C)(D) (E)
                                 \   |   /
                                  \  | /
                                     F

     


    Is this possible with SharePoint Designer 2007

    Have tried to Google this but don't really know what to search for :/

  • Hi,

     

    In SharePoint Designer 2010, you can stop a workflow when a participant rejects the document. But this cannot be achieved in SharePoint Designer with OOTB features.

     

    Thanks.

  • I solved it by writing the answers to the document, having check boxes to indicate when to start the parallel workflows. I also used check boxes to indicate if a workflow should be skipped.
