none
more than one approve in project server 2010 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    We have projects which have a status manager who approves the task updates and a different person as the owner.

    The task updates first go to the task manager (this is whats happening now) and afterwards i want them to be sent to the owner and be approved by him too. Is this possible? 

    Thanks in advance

  • Dear Sepidehgh,impossible, task status just have one layer approval. Be side that, Timesheet could have 2 or more layers approval(Timesheet manager)

  • Thanks for your attention

    One more thing, can i change the workflow of these approvals and somehow customize it to which we want to happen?

    Or as another question can i make a notification sent to the project owner when the status manager approves the updates?

  • Hi there--

    You can create your customize workflow for project approval process but the task updates is a single step process that sends email notification for Status Manager to update/reject task but muiltilevel approvers on tasks updates cannot be customized.

    Regarding the second question, You can write a project server event that traps the OnStatusUpdated event of project server that sends out email to project owner.

    Hope that helps.
