customize “Request Change” button behavior in approval workflow.


  • Hi ,

    I am using SharePoint OOB approval workflow for my documentset. When user1 create item then workflow will be triggered and task assigned to user2. When user2 click task item link he will get below form.

    On click of “request change” button he will get below.  

    I have 3 questions.

    1.        Can I customize the behavior of “Request Change” button? Like I want to add previous approver/creator name in “request change from” text box?
    2.        From SharePoint designer when I open association from of the workflow in InfoPath am able the see the form of 1st screenshot. I am able to see the fields of 2<sup>nd</sup> from. I didn’t understand from where 2nd form is coming from?
    3.        I know that we can customize the workflow in SP designer by creating a replica of it. Can I send a reminder mail every hour/day till the time workflow is completed? (I can’t use Loop as OOB approval workflow is SharePoint 2010 workflow)
