    Approval workflow using APEX

    venkatv


      Hi all,

       

      I have a scenario where we will have to create an APEX app that sends an email with a link to "Approve" or "Reject" an approval limit for an employee. The approvers credentials have to be validated when clicked on the link in the email and then the result has to be captured back in the APEX app.

       

      Has anyone done anything like this before.  If so, can you please help me with some pointers?

       

      Any help will be appreciated.  I am trying my best to get this working so that I can prove that APEX can do whatever .NET can...

       

      Thanks!

          Could you have a link provided in the email such as

          youserver.com/ords/f?p=YOURAPP:VALPAGE:0:APPROVE:::P1_ID:651984654981

           

          This should request user credentials, and bit in bold is example of how you could send information for the page to process.

          Or have a page with two big approve/reject buttons for the record who's ID you provided.
