Approvals are specialized workflow elements designed to support approval scenarios. Approvals have a set of fixed outcomes that the workflow supports. These outcomes are as follows:
Approve - Outcome type Complete.
Reject - Outcome type Return to the originator of the workflow.
RequestChange - Outcome type ChangeRequested to a specific person in the workflow process.
Deny - Outcome type Deny.
The fixed outcomes listed earlier cannot be deleted in the AOT. However, you can set the workflow outcome Enabled property to No to disable the workflow outcome in the application.
Each approval outcome can be associated with a specific action web menu item, action menu item, and event handler. The action web menu item displays the action button name and dialog box when this action is selected from the Enterprise Portal work list or Enterprise Portal workflow controls. The action menu item displays the action button name and dialog box when this action is selected from the unified work list or the client workflow controls.
Each approval must have one outcome of type Complete.
