How to implement SPD mixed parallel approval workflow RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are creating parallel approval task.

    There are 4 groups.  All groups need to approve the request.

    Each group has multiple approvers and we only need one of them to approve.

    How to implement this in the SharepointDesigner parallel approval? Thanks.

  • Hi lcha,

    We can create the SharePoint Designer workflow like this:

    Add Start Approval Process action, click user and add group1, group2, group3 and group4 as Participants.

    Then change assign tasks from "One at a time (serial)" to "All at once (parallel)" and done.

    Thanks & Regards,
    Emir
