ApprovalManager for Workflows

  Asked By: Tommie    Date: Jan 21    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 14787

I am trying to use the ApprovalManager from the gotdotnet workspace. I
have got everything working, except migrating the document to another
document library upon approval/rejection. Has anyone got this feature
to work? I am not sure what format the URL is supposed to be. I
haven't watched the 2 webcasts (I hope they help), but was just
wondering beforehand if anyone has had any success.

GDN search is broken. Can you provide a link to the ApprovalManager?

Ok, i watched the webcast and got it to work. The URL for the
document library  you want to send the document  to needs to be
something like: http://server/sites/site/libraryname. It shouldn't
include the /Forms/ and whatnot.

Also, if you choose to watch the first webcast, at the 31 minute mark
there are some technical difficulties. I highly recommend turning off
the volume unless you want to experience the thrill of being inside a

This product is pretty decent. It gives you a pretty good interface
for document  workflow. There are some drawbacks, but since I haven't
watched the second webcast, I'm not sure if the following features
are explained:

1. Can you configure it to return the document back to the original
sender on approval? I know that you can send it to one location, but
say division A and division B both submit documents for approval. How
do you set it so that on approval each division gets back its
respective doc? A workaround would be to create 2 different doc libs,
but that could quickly become hard to maintain.

2. Say I need the go-ahead from two managers before the project is
approved. Where do I send it? Do I send it to one document library,
and give both people rights to it? Or is there a way to send copies
to both people?

These are just two of the many questions I have about this product.
It is pretty good, and even though it may not be a final solution to
your workflow, it does let you get 'hands-on' with event handlers.
