We have a document library and department pages. In the department pages we have links to documents in the library. We also have a document approval workflow. It's it possible to get the link created in the page once the final approval has been completed?


  • Should you elaborate more what do you mean with link created within the page ?!! – Mohamed El-Qassas MVP Feb 2 '17 at 15:07
  • Yes. Each department has a page and on the page is a number of links to the corresponding document in the library. Is it possible to have a step as part of the approval process to create a link in the department page? – Mckay1402 Feb 2 '17 at 15:12

I don't think it's possible with OOTB Approval workflow, But you can do a a simple workaround to achieve that as the following:

  • Create a custom view in your library to show only the approved document that related to this department.

  • Edit your page and instead of adding the documents links manually, try to add a web part, add your document library ,

  • Edit the web part and select your custom view to show only the document links that approved.
