  • Hi

     i have this requirement for design a workflow

    --i have some fileds  in list    requester, status  , comments

    --- and two users to approve


    1. Change request raised by requestor (status of the request – Pending )
    2. Approver 1 and 2 gets email of the requests
    3. They approve or reject the request
    4. Approver 1 and Approver 2 can post comments and display list filed comments
    5. Requestor gets email notification regarding the approval or rejection of the request
    6. If they approve the request , status changed to approved, even if one approver rejects the request, it changes to rejected
    7. Requestor works on the change (if approved) and closes the change request by putting date and time of closure
    8. Status of change request closed
