Im trying to get a workflow to start once the SharePoint Approval workflow has completed and set to 'Approved'. I cannot get this to start automatically - any help!?!

I can get it to work manually by using the command:

Wait for Approval to equal 16

then create item in List

Many Thanks

You don't need 2 separate workflows. Try approval process within your workflow.

Create a new workflow in SharePoint Designer and find a following actions.

Actions > Task Actions > Start Approval Process

This action automatically start a approval process within your workflow. Article
