Run parallel approvals against dynamic collection of users

Hi,

 

I have a dynamically built collection of users (the number of users changes depending on a field on a form).

 

I need to send an approval out to each user at the same time, because I don't know how many users will be in the collection I can't set the amount of branches in a parallel action.

 

Anyone have some ideas on how I could achieve this?

 

Thanks

set a text variable with users separated by ;

and set that variable on a Flexi Task

Re: Run parallel approvals against dynamic collection of users

I'd like to do this as well but all of my assignment tasks are different.   So can I create a dynamic parallel set of tasks?

Do you have any update on this issue? Has any of you solved it? I am trying to implement more or less the same thing.

Thank you.

Re: Run parallel approvals against dynamic collection of users

Hi Dimiter,

I ended up looping through my assignees and creating a separate list item for each of them in another list that included original RequestID, assignee, and any other task related info.    Then I had a workflow on that list that kicked off on item creation that assigned a task to them.    I believe this is the only way to do it so that you can have "x" number of assignees.     

One thing further you may or may not need-   I paused my original workflow until a status was updated on the original list item.   Then in my assignment workflow after completion of the task I do a list look up to find if there any outstanding tasks related to the original item.    If there aren't then I update the status on the original list item so that my original workflow can continue.   

Good luck!

Brad
