Creating workflow for documents

  Asked By: Sheldon    Date: Sep 23    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 5123

Is there a way to implement workflow to a document library withough
creating custom event handlers? Maybe as a Web part or a property on
the doc library? The standard workflow processes such as approval,
rejection, and pend would be sufficient. There seems to be a little
documentation on this for SPS 2001 but nothing for SPS2003 with WSS.

Event handlers  are the only built-in workflow  in SPS2003 and/or WSS. There are
several 3rd party vendors that do this, such as SourceCode, Captaris, etc.

in building a system for it so it could integrate with
SPS, but it is not a web part  but it will showing
document related information in a web part........i

workflow - they may give you a good starting point. For example:-
