VS Workflow with multiple sets of tasks

  Asked By: Madhu    Date: Dec 09    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1519

I am trying to create a workflow in VS08, where the first step assigns each user
(several at once, via replicator) an approval task, and for each user that
complete that first task, a new task is generated and sent to another user to
provide feedback. They can then add feedback, submit, and a 3rd (final) task is
create for each of those tasks that are completed, back to the original person
for final approval. Basically this is a workflow that creates new tasks after
1st ones are finished for each assigned user. Many of these have to be
initiated at one time, so many people can approve/send for feedback/re-approve
on one document at the same time. Do you know the fastest strategy for doing

I have tried using a state machine, but haven't been able to get it to spawn to
multiple people (i.e. 10 people at once need to be approving their task, having
another one create, etc). I tried InvokeWorkflow to replicate a bunch of state
approvals, but haven't gotten it working.I have also tried a sequential workflow
that creates new tasks after the first ones, but it never creates any tasks
after the first.

Task replicator activity would be useful. Msft has example using it in ECM
starter kit.

Or parallel activities with same set of activity within it.
