Approval Rejected Email to Author

  Asked By: Faith    Date: Feb 06    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1812

When a document approval is rejected, is there an existing feature (or
customization) that will send an email back to the author notifying
him/her that their document approval was rejected?

No unfortunately not. The only workaround is to use the doc_status webpart.
The WP tells if there are docs waiting for approval  or not.

For everyone else, the web part can be found at the bottom of

Here's the description:

Document Status Tool
This Web Part, included in the SharePoint Portal Server Resource kit,
shows each user the documents checked out to him, documents awaiting his
approval, and his documents pending the approval  of others. Before use,
an administrator must run a setup script on the server.
