Two-level approval workflow for document management in Sharepoint Designer 2007 or wss 3.0 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    The current features of WSS 3.0 allows you only a single-level approval workflow where you can create minor versions of each document and once it is approved, it gets changed to a major version.

    My requirement is:

    I have some folders under which some documents are created:

    folder A -> some documents -> Reviewer -> Top-level Approver

    folder B -> some documents -> Reviewer -> Top-level Approver

    etc.

    After review, the version of the document should remain as minor and the major version should be created after the top-level approver approves it.

    If the document is rejected, the version will remain the same. Mails have to go the concerned person at each step.

  • Are you able to use SharePoint Designer?  You'd be able to achive this with a custom SPD Workflow.

  • Yes, but I am not sure how to map the workflow based on the versioning of the documents. Also, there is a review stage. Sharepoint allows a minor version to be approved to a major version directly. 

    I have a basic idea of how to use the workflows, but I just need a starting point over which I can devise my logic. Because I don't think the document list can be customized enough to create workflow only through that document list. I hope you understand my problem.
