I cannot seem to figure out how to get a workflow to work the way I think it should work, and need some help or some suggestions as to how I can go about creating a workflow. Effectively for a certain document there are several options to choose from, each of which will affect who's approval is required within the workflow. I gave up trying to ask the user for these options during the workflow process and storing them in a variable as it never worked, and I am running into some of the same type of stopping blocks if I instead use required fields when a user uploads a document. Here are the two logic blocks behind how I want the workflow setup:
IT Request (Yes/No)
If yes approval of CIO needed no matter the cost
Cost of request (<5000 , 5000 - 10000 , 10000 - 100000 , > 100000 )
In order, each option requires approvals of the previous options.
Manager, Facility Leader, CFO, CEO
I must be missing some piece of the puzzle on how Sharepoint wants these to occur but I am not sure how to construct these so it works. Below is a screenshot of what I have so far constructed with no luck.
If I move all of the approvals out of parallel and into serial even after approval it comes out as rejected:
