Creating an request form with approve and deny buttons



Can any one help?? I am trying to create an embedded request for hire form in
an email and send it to the approving managers. I need to have an approve or
deny button on it with custom settings to either forward to next person if
approved or come back to the requestor with a denial. Seems like it should be
easy, but I cannot figure it out.

No, it's not easy. Whether it can be done at all depends on whether you are working with Exchange as your mail server and can publish to the Organizational Forms library. If not, the alternative would be to publish the form to every possible user's Personal Forms library. Let us know whether either is possible in your organization.

Also, you need to think about how you would define "next person" in the context of your form.

I know this is a five year old thread but I am working with Exchange as my mail server and need help with a similar problem!

I have created a "Master Table" and forms that can update the master table. Everytime there is a change made through the forms I have it set to go to an audit table.

I want to have an email generated to me where I can view the changes and approve/deny them before they update the master table.

Thank you in advance for your help!
