The survey list can handle this out of the box. If that doesn't suit the need, then you can create a custom list with all your form fields and create a custom InfoPath form to show/hide content or use javascript/jQuery on the form pages to show/hide infomation. If you want it to be a document, then you can use a form library and create your own InfoPath ...

It depends on the settings of the publishing approval workflow. Approvers, by default, are just people with approval privileges.

You can access it from list settings > workflow ...

One thought: create a hidden field that increments each time a person approves. Use a separate workflow to perform the increment. Set countfield to value+1. Then, set approval field to approved once the count is greater than or equal to 2.

The issue was that my email address was somehow not unique enough in SharePoint even though it should only point to one person (me). I changed my user approverstring concatenation to split users up with "Login names, semi-colon delimited" and changed the approval to "Start with [approverstring] as String"

Here is my suggestion: Create a Custom Action, either through SharePoint Designer or Visual Studio. The Custom Action should call a JavaScript function that starts a workflow that marks the folder as approved / rejected. The custom action can pass tokens to your JavaScript function ({ItemId} is the only token that works for me from SharePoint Designer). The ...

I don't work with approval workflows but I will just throw this out and hopefully someone else can expand upon it. When a form or document is opened by an Office product its put into a locked state to keep someone else from making changes to it while you are editing it. Generally the lock goes away as soon as you close the form other times it gets stuck and ...

You can edit the workflow in SPD and customize the action. Here's a similar question but with the opposite (to cancel on first rejection) And have you checked this codeplex project ?

You can create an additional column or columns to capture initial settings. The workflow should fire on item creation and copy the original items you want to track. On change you do comparisons or read in original data (use the substring actions) in variables and use them as required. If you need to capture more than a few text strings, you could create a ...

Yes - you should be able to check this if you already have the proper access. You can start with a personal view if you don't want other to see it (or use a listview webpart on a page with a custom view if you want to control access that way). You have a variety of options but they depend on the configuration of the farm. Custom listview (targeted at ...

Sharepoint workflows that start automatically are tied to events that fire when listitems are created or changed. SharePoint doesn't fire any events when the user profile properties change so not only can standard workflows not work for this scenario, you can't even roll your solution with a custom event receiver. I would solve it this way: ┬ĚRestrict a ...

You have to edit the task form using InfoPath. From SharePoint designer, go to the Workflow's main settings page, then in the Forms section (bottom right) look for the Approval Task form (it might have a weird name like Approval_x0020_9 or something like that) and click on it. This will open the form in InfoPath. Change the view to ChangeRequest. You ...

It was no way obvious to me ...

Is this an Item-Updated or Item-Updating event receiver? According to Chris O'Brien: If a list has workflows defined which are set to auto-start, these will always execute before any other 'ItemUpdated' or 'ItemCreated' event receivers by default. It is possible to re-order these in code however - I needed to do this once as for some reason I needed a ...

You need to create or modify a column in the list to be required. This list column can be named something like "Approver" and users that create the item list will be required to enter in this information. This will be where the workflow will come in. You can create a SharePoint Designer workflow that will "Start an Approval Process" with the "Approver" as ...

SP Doesn't search historical versions in any out of the box setups that I'm aware of. SP limits the searching capabilities to published versions. There are third party tools that do this however. If you wanted to have this information going forward, you could set up a Yes/No Field with a Approved?" as the label - and make it hidden on new forms. Have a ...
