Get approbation for each group owner in user profile


Hi,

I looking for a way to start a workflow where all the groups that are
requested would first get approval from the owner of the group. I have
been able to start one when there is one for one (One group, one owner)
but not with multiple groups with different owners.

A good example would be that I have 5 groups, 4 of them belong to one
owner and 1 to another, so I want to start 2 workflow based on that fact
(one with the 4 groups and the owner as the addressee and so on)

As anyone done this before and would you be ok in sharing how you
achieve this ?

Thanks !

Re: Get approbation for each group owner in user profile


I've done something like this before.

I created a two column listbox. The left hand side has the available
groups and you move the requested groups to the right hand side. The
remainder of the workflow iterates through the selected groups and
spawns a new workflow for each one. The spawned workflow is a simple
approval workflow that reads the group owner and passes the approval
accordingly.

I'm sure I've seen something like this described on Cool Solutions but
couldn't find it.

Re: Get approbation for each group owner in user profile


Hi Mark,

Thanks for the reply, I have been able to get the groups that I want to
assign, I am using a field like "Same As" I get all the groups of that
user, I am just stuck with getting the workflow started based on all
different Owner of the groups and I would like to be able to fire-up
only one workflow per owner with all the groups that belongs to them.

I did also find things on the discussion forum, but the person did not
answer my request as if he were able to make it work and how :-). If you
did something similar to what I am trying to do, would you be ok in
showing example of what you did so I can start on that base ?

Thanks
