  • Hi,

    According to your description, my understanding is that you want to create a list workflow via SharePoint Designer 2010 to send email with three links (Accept, Reject, Tentative) which users click to update list items.

    Please follow the steps below to achieve your request:

    1. Setup outgoing emails and incoming emails.
    2. Create a list workflow via SharePoint Designer 2010, configure the approval process.
    3. Create a Visual Studio Sharepoint 2010 sequential workflow and add a single “Code” action in the workflow immediately after workflow_activated.
