I am quite a newbie with SharePoint Designer. I have been playing around a bit with approval workflows, but I can't seem to get it right. Can someone please help me a bit with some kind of guide of how to set up the workflow below? The workflow would look like this:
A document library user creates and uploads a document. Since there are so many people using the library the user himself assigns the appropriate approver for the document. This assigned approver is then shown in a column in the same library.
When the approver is assigned, only he gets an e-mail which asks him to approve the document, so the others with the approval permission will not be notified. The approver then approves or rejects the document.
What happens if the document does not have an approver? Ideally I would like to allow open drafts seen by others without any mails going to the approver, but the approver being notified only when he/she has been assigned.
I'm using SharePoint 2013.
