When designing a workflow using SharePoint Designer, is there any maximum number of validation steps? Thanks.

Do you mean workflow conditions? Or checking users permission levels? – Gravity M Apr 30 '13 at 17:02
I mean, the maximum number of "approvers" I can chain in a workflow. – pmaugeri Apr 30 '13 at 20:57

The number of validation steps is variable depending on what you are doing, but there is what's called a max complexity value that can be adjusted through powershell.
