This seems like a pretty simple question..but couldn't find anywhere else. Is there any way of getting approvers for a FlexiTask (or any approval task) when the workflow is run by a user? So like the OOB sharepoint approval workflow when users can add approvers when they run the workflow.
I know you can have an approvers column on a list and have the users enter the approvers there, but would be a much better experience to have the user declare the approvers when the WF is executed.
Thanks for any help on this!
Yes, have a string that is present on the start form
The use can then enter a delimited list of users
This string is then used as the list of approvers in the flexi task
Its very little different to using a list entry, of course there wont be any validation
Thanks for the response Graham...unfortunately there must be validation. We can't rely on users to enter a delimited list of users and expect any kind of accuracy ;-).
Well, you could validate the users in the workflow and abort if they are invalid - send the originator an email telling them where they went wrong
