Macro code in ad-hoc workflows: approvals

I have designed a workflow that requires approvals in 2 states: 'Review and Recommend' and 'Sign Off'

I would like to enhance my code such that when the state transitions from 'Review and Recommend' to 'Sign Off', approvals are automatically assigned to two different users (Jack and Jill) in the 'Sign Off' state. I see the concept mentioned here, however I am unsure how to write the code to do it. Here is my current code. Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance.



    {state:In Progress}


    {state:Review and Recommend|approved=Sign off Approval|rejected=In Progress|taskable=true}

        {approval:Review and Recommend|assignable=true}


    {state:Sign Off|approved=Approved|rejected=In Progress|completed=Approved|taskable=true}

Hi Conor,

Here's what you want to change your "Review" approval to:

{approval:Review|user=&USERNAME1, USERNAME2}

Where USERNAME1 and USERNAME2 are the usernames for the users you want automatically assigned.


Thank you Miguel!
