Able to autumatically set appprover to Created By?


Doug Verhun (75169) | asked Jan 06 '12, 11:56 a.m.
I'm using RTC 3.0.1, and I'm wondering if it's possible to, upon work item creation, automatically set an approval and approver to the user who creates (or owns) the work item? This would save someone from having to manually add an approver for each new work item. I've looked into work item templates, but I'd like to avoid creating a template for each one of our client's/approver's.

Thanks in advance,
Doug

This can be done by creating an advisor on that workitem in the particular state. There may allready be one in th eperation behaviour section if not you can find documentation on how to create your own.

There is currently no pre-defined operation behavior for automatically
adding an approval/approver, so you would need to implement your own
follow-up action to do so.
