I want to create a leave application form for my department. I would
need to create a form which accepts the leave details and once the
form is submitted it has to be approved by the supervisor and finally
by the Head of the department.

The reporting manager and the HOD details can be procured from the DB
or Active directory for that particular user.

I am newbie in MOSS 2007 though i have done some work on 2003. I am
completely new to workflows and form creations using infopath. Any
pointers on how to go about doing it will be welcome

I am working on a task in SharePoint where we need to develop the following

We need to develop a product development Lifecycle in SharePoint

1.1.1 create  Product Development Plan
Primary Actor “ Project Manager

The project manager  is notified of the new product development comprising one or
more competencies. Project manager creates the product development plan and
assigns tasks to a writer.

After product review the Project Manager updates the project schedule and
assigns any rework back to the Writer.

1.1.2 Develop Product

The Writer creates or updates the product based on product development
guidelines. Write at later stage also incorporates feedback from the reviewers
in to the product.

As part of product development process, the Writer creates an assessment

1.1.4 Access Product Development Guidelines

Comprehensive product development guidelines have been developed by the
department. The writer is required to develop product based on these set of
guidelines. Editor and Reviewer also assess the material against these

The Editor makes editorial changes to the product and assessment instrument.
Upon completion the material is submitted for review

required, the product and assessment instrument are passed back to the Project

1. I want to know that how can I personlise workflow(three-state) because that
is visible to every one those who r the member of the site.
2. How can i link approve/reject form  with this workflow  i.e. three- state in

Answer #5    Answered By: Ruchir Satam     Answered On: Oct 26

Instances of a workflow  can be configured when you add the three-state workflow
to a specific list or library. But there is no way to customize the original
workflow for different members of a site. The Three state workflow is a compiled
workflow written by Microsoft in Visual Studio. Without the source code to
modify and recompile you are limited to the changes available in the Initiation
form (the one that comes up when you add it to a list or library). There is
also no way to link the workflow to the approve/reject form  of the list or
library without custom programming.

To build custom workflows you need to use either SharePoint Designer or Visual
Studio to build the workflow from scratch.

building sharepoint workflows.
