Do all workflow approvals appear in Outlook? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    In the past I have used the FIM add-ins for Outlook to approve or reject Group Join Requests.

    However, if someone changes their mobile number, for example, and this needs to be approved by their manager - does this request by default also appear in Outlook with the Approve/Reject button? If yes, do we also need to deploy FIM add-ins for Outlook?

    Thanks,

    SK

  • Hi,

    all aproval workflows will send an email to the approver.

    The outlook plug-in catches the data in that mail, so that you can approve it right from outlook by sending the workflow approval mail.

    There is no need to use the plug-in, you can also put a link in that mail so that users can approve the request directly in portal.
