SharePoint 2013 Designer WorkFlow Approval


  • Hello SharePoint People,

    I am looking to have a list that I have created, when someone enters in someone's name into one specific field, it will send a email approval to that person, if no ones name is entered no email is sent. Is this possible and how?

  • Create a SharePoint Designer workflow and make it run on item Created. If the value of that person field empty just exit the workflow otherwise start the approval process and assign that user as approver.

    Based on your approval outcome you can set the content approval on the item so users do not see until its approved. For setting up content approval you can use " Set Content Approval Status" action.
