Lazy Approval for those who don’t have time

The Lazy Approval function allows employees to approve or reject requests directly from any location via notification emails, response to a Lync conversation or automated server message.

Lazy Approval for those who don’t have time
Avoid process stalls with state machines

Avoid process stalls with state machines

With state machines, workflow processes jump between different levels of business logic in a way that's easy to understand and maintain. This means that you can avoid delays in your SharePoint processes by setting up synchronous approvals – common with processes such as employee on-boarding and document approval. Request denied in the workflow? Kick back processes to a previous level of approval in the workflow.
