Can we have parallel approval in Project server 2010 workflow? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    In project server 2010 workflow, can we set approval from two group parallelly? For example say two approval groups are there HR and Finance.In one stage itslef can we send approval task to these two groups so that when one person from HR and one person from finance approves the task it moves to next stage.


    Thanks, Lovely

  • good question,

    I don't know the answer, but I don't see a reason why you cant do that. Alternatively you may want to create an extra approval group that contains the other 2 groups.

    Hope this helps

  • Thanks for the response.

    If we are creating one group for both the approval group, when one person is doing approval it will move to next stage. right? How can we enforce that one person from both department is approving that.


    Thanks, Lovely

  • Hi rose,

    that is correct. within the workflow you can determine if you like all users or only one user to approve this. In fact in the 2010 demo image that you can download there is an example of a workflow that only requires approval from one of the group.

    Hope this helps
