This is the seventh of a series (the series is listed at the bottom) of "How To " Videos that I have created to show .NET Developers how to build document workflow in a SharePoint environment.
In this scenario, I take the workflow that I built in the How To Video on Building a Basic Approval Workflow (found here) by adding a second level (and you could extend it to multiple levels) of Approval based on a SharePoint Custom Column (Expense Report Total in this case). Although I built the "trigger" on the Expense Total column, you can build it on any number of other factors within the document, SharePoint Columns, or workflow activities.
