whether to go for windows workflow or not RRS feed

  • Question

  • hi,

     I am having a requirement to implement the below scenario:

      Have an aspx form.User submits this and it will go to an approver. Assume, if the approver did not approve the form within 30 days

    on the 31st day it will be auto-approved and it will be going into the InBox of Approver-2 [ level-2 ] . 

    Again here the form stays till few days - say- 5 days- if its not approved by him  on the 6th day , the form is auto-approved and it will go to 3rd level .

    So pls advice should i go ahead and create a sequential workflow for this.


    any disadvantages if i create a normal aspx form and  set a timer job which runs every morning and checks the status of this form -  in sql db -->  formstatus column - if its approved i will populate the values with the 2ndlevel Approver's Form.

    Can i achieve the  functionality without going through the  complex workflow foundation concept in .net 4.0?

    am using VS 2010 / .NET 4.0.

    help is appreciated.
