I need to create a simple job management workflow in SharePoint 2010 that looks something like this:

enter image description here

The OOTB Three-state workflow would work perfectly, except I do not want emails sent to the initiator at each stage, only to Person A and Person B.

I am very new to SharePoint Designer 2013 and Visio 2013, and am relatively experienced with InfoPath. My site collection uses SharePoint 2010 workflows (despite being a SharePoint 2013 site collection). Any advice or direction would be deeply appreciated.

Set the Workflow Trigger to On Change.

  • If "Task Status" is "Not Started" and Assigned To is Empty
    • Assign Task to "Approver"
    • Send Email
  • Else If "Task Status" is Approved
    • Stop Workflow
  • Else
    • Send email to "Approver"
    • Stop Workflow

When the "Approver" changes the status, it will fire off the workflow again.

  • So simple! I'm embarrassed I didn't think of it myself. Thank you! – Jon-Mikel Oct 23 '17 at 21:54

It's not necessarily straightforward, as there's no "Loop" action or "For Each" condition (in 2010 at least, SPD2013 has a "Loop" function according to the first source below), but there are ways to manually create loop workflows.

Here's a detailed, in-depth example using one list and many views, as well as InfoPath: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/24589.build-a-loop-workflow-using-sharepoint-2010.aspx

Here's another technique, using three different lists: http://sharepointgypsy.blogspot.com/2011/11/create-for-each-loop-for-workflows.html

For lopping workflow you need to use SharePoint 2013 workflow i.e., Stage workflow. so that infinite time u call any stage any time.
