Designer Workflows - Serial and Parallel?

Sep 19, 2007 at 5:45 PM
Currently, I do not have SP Designer 2007 (although I'm trying to talk my company into purchasing it). Can anyone tell me if Designer allows a combination of serial and parallel tasks within one workflow.

My workflow has primarily serial tasks, but there are a few tasks that should be completed simultaneously, but seperately, by different individuals. Once each of the individuals has completed their own task and marks it complete in the WF, then the next serial task in line would be assigned.

I know it can't be done directly within SP; I was hoping that Designer had that feature to help my cause. Thanks in advance, Dozzee

This can be done using SP Designer workflows. BTW, you could download a 60 day trial, show the working result to ur management and then they will buy it.

Great, I'll give it a try.
