How can I configure a Leave Request Workflow to come back to the Initiator?

Jump to solution

I am new to Nintex and I have been following the tutorials. I want to do a simple workflow: when a Manager rejects a Request, it has to come back to the Initiator, and he/she must choose another date. Then, the Manager should reject or approve again.

 

Is it posible to do this with just one workflow?

 

Thanks in advance.

To do this "looping" approval you should use a State Machine. See here for a an example of approvals in a State Machine. Using State Machine Workflows


What you will do is have in one state the task for the Manager, in another the task for the initiator. The starting State will be the Manager's branch (or state), and if he rejects then change the state to the Initiator State. When he completes his task then change the state to Manager's State. Then this can go into a loop as you can see until the Manager finally approves. When he approves use the "Change State" action and set it to "End State Machine". Then the workflow will exit the state machine and perform and final actions below it.
