How do I create a condition on custom fields to perform an action such as send a templace email ?

Hi there

I perform a manual task for sending out emails when work flow status is

"Awaiting Approvals" 

>when status  is Awaiting Approvals,

>send email to sent to a group called "Approvers" with a

> standard email. KEY is awaiting your Approval please log in review and Comment "Approved"

Any questions to the Change Owner.


"Awaiting Post Review"

>when status is set to "Awaiting Post Review"

>send email is send to Change Owner to carry out the post review
