How can I set up a new workflow approval?

  1. I have a SP List.

  2. Once the user (note there are multiple users) has submitted a new item, a workflow will be started.

  3. It will send an email to the designated Approver (example: supervisor of the user)

  4. Once the supervisor of the user approved, this will be re-routed to me (as the Site owner) and will also be subject for my approval.

Anyone can help?
