OOTB Approval Workflow and Sharepoint Designer 2007 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am fairly new to SPD. I found out I cannot modify an OOTB workflow. I want to add the ability to determine the approval group (which would be serial approvals) by three criteria from a Sharepoint list. These criteria are location first, then type of request, then dollar amount. Based on these 3 criteria, I want the workflow to essentially start the OOTB approval workflow. Is it possible for a custom workflow to trigger an OOTB workflow? My goal is to have 3 different OOTB approval workflows and have some custom workflow use 3 criteria above to decide which OOTB workflow to initiate. If not above, then How can I re-create the OOTB approval workflow using Sharepoint Designer 2007?

  • Hi,

    For your requirement I would suggest you to implement event receivers and in the code you can verify various criteria nad can invoke the correct instance of the workflow.

    I hope this will help you out.

    Thanks, Rahul Rashu
