  2. Go to Workflow

  3. Select Process_Requisition


Node Tab

  1. Go to Node tab

  2. Add new node name it : (DocApprove) and choose User choice as the Action at the colum box select "isApprove"


Transition Tab

  1. Save it then move to Transition tab and create new record, fill in next node with (DocComplete)


New Transition

  1. Save it, and back to Node Tab, select (DocPrepare)

  2. There is no modification in node tab for (DocPrepare), but we are going to add a new transition for this node

  3. Jump to Transition node again and add new record then fill in next node with (DocApprove)


  1. Make sure line no of the new record is smaller than line no of 1st Transition (DocComplete)



  1. Save it and congratulations as you now have got yourself an approval workflow.
