What I want: I want to create workflow on list which contain three steps approval process. When task is approved then next level task will be created and if it is rejected then previous level task is again activated and next level task will not created.

Example: Item Inserted into list and First Task is created.

Tasks1: for Emaployee Approved/Rejected then create next

Tasks2: for Superior Approved/Rejected then create next else reassign to Emaployee

Tasks3: for Manager Approved/Rejected then create next else reassign to Superior

Also I want: I have used customization setting of workflow but that approval is content approval Require content approval for submitted items but I want Approval Process like SharePoint 2010 in SharePoint 2013 enter image description here

To can go back in workflow, you should use stages and transition to stage at SharePoint 2013 workflow Platform by doing the following


  • Create a list workflow with SharePoint 2013 workflow Platform.

  • Create Three Stage as something like the following based on your requirements

Note : تمت الموافقة = Approved

  • This answer is helpful for me. and I have created this workflow but I am unable to find task approval in task list as end user. where to approve it. In SharePoint 2010, we can approve task to click on title of the task and approval window opens. and in SharePoint 2013 i didn't find approval window. Commented Sep 14, 2016 at 14:28
  • Dear @MohitSikhwal I am sorry for late , when you click on workflow in SharePoint designer , you will find customization section that has our task list , task history . at task list you can find all tasks related to this workflow, also , when you assign task it should receive an email to approve or reject it , also after you publish your workflow it will add a new column with the workflow name that has the current status when you click on it. you can show the details of the current task and wait to approve for "xxx" , please don't hesitate to tell me if you need more clarification Commented Sep 14, 2016 at 20:18

  • What I know, when you assign a task it should appear as Task Form msdnshared.blob.core.windows.net/media/MSDNBlogsFS/… not like default approve , meanwhile, you can customize your task form as mentioned at blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/sharepointdesigner/2012/09/14/… also I suggest to you to ask this new request at new question to can get more answers Commented Sep 15, 2016 at 13:44
