I have a standard OOTB approval workflow which I have associated with a list. I want auto approval of items in the list if the Rating field has been set to 1 or 2. Only ratings of 3 or higher need to go through the approval workflow.

How can I do this? In Sharepoint Designer I have edited a copy of the OOTB workflow to try and add the condition "If current item field equals value" But I cannot see the Rating field (or any fields) from the list item.

When editing a Sharepoint workflow in Designer you need to add the Site Column by clicking the Association Columns button. After you add the Site Column you can reference it in the "Current Item" of the Workflow.
