This basic workflow scenario supports a document review and approval/reject process. The workflow starts when a document is added to a specified “Drafts” SharePoint library.
The workflow assigns a task to a reviewer, who evaluates the draft, makes comments as necessary, and then concludes the task by either routing the document back to the writer for revisions, or forwarding it to the editor for editing and release. Additional tasks are assigned, depending on the branch.
If the document was returned to the writer for revisions, the writer completes the revision task, and the workflow loops back to the reviewer. When the document is forwarded to the editor, the task completion adds the finished doc to another document library named “manuscripts”.
