Workflov for One Category that Requires Approval in Color Calendar RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, I am trying to set up a color calendar with a workflow that allows user to submit request for days off, and it needs to be approved / rejected by the manager, then published on the calendar.

    I have run into the dead end - While using the default workflow for type Event, all submitted events require approval.

    Second option was workflow that I set up and attached to calendar, I do not get notification emails for user submitting request, nor confirmation non approval/rejection. I am sure I am missing something.
    The manager does get an email, but all the info in it that are coming from calendar fields is quite ugly, for example User name is displayed in email as path PCPC\zuze001

    I have searched and searched, and tried several tutorials on the workflow, this one was the closest that I could find.

    Can I create 2 separate calendars, and display them merged as one calendar? If I can do that, I could set event type workflow for days off calendar, and that would work.

    I would really appreciate if you could point me to right direction.
