Dennis,

Thanks again for all your help. But I guess I didn’t totally understand.

I created two approval stages. One for the managers and one for the directors.

Each of the participants is assigned to a role. Granting access this way works very well.

The behavior for the management stage is:

Manager 1 must approve.

and

Manager 2 must approve.

and

Manager 3 must approve.

and

Manager 4 must approve.

and

Manager 5 must approve.

and

Manager 6 must approve.

and

Manager 7 must approve.

If this is met it goes to the directors for approval.

Director 1 must approve.

or

Director 2 must approve.

or

Director 3 must approve.

or

Director 4 must approve.

If this is met everything concludes as it should.

If there is a rejection anywhere it works as it should.

But if a manager doesn’t respond in a timely manner everything stops.

So I added an escalated notification to the directors to the management stage.

If enough time elapses a message is sent to the directors. Once a director approves it sends email out to all the directors to approve (for directors stage). What I need is for the request to be approved without it being sent again to the directors again.

Do I use one approval stage for managers and directors?

Thanks,

andy
