Workflow - list of approvers

  Asked By: Bhavini    Date: Jul 12    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 3771

I have an approval workflow where the specific approver is dependent
upon the email address of the person uploading the document. This in
itself is not a problem (since I can link the approver and the poster
programatically when I fire off the workflow), but I would like to
store the matching pairs of email address/approvers in a way that they
can be maintained by the site admin.

What would be the best way to do this in SharePoint? In a standard
ASP.net app I would just create a code table and a sysadmin interface,
but in SharePoint I am not sure what the "best practice" is to do this.

I can think of two possibilities. One would be to
add a custom field to everyone's profile and keep the approver  email address
in it; the other would be simply to create  and maintain a List with the
necessary pairs. The latter makes a lot more sense if your approvers  apply
to groups, departments, etc. instead of individuals.

Madison, I have a list and am trying to get emails sent from it to multiple approvers. It sends it to one approver only instead of two and I can't figure out why that is.
