    Hello,
    I have a form in wp that user can submit posts and I would like to submit the posts for approve but, the tricky part here is that on the form user can select another user to approve the post (not WP admin). Please advise

    Thanks,
    Androklis

    Hi Androklis,

    One option would be to use Oasis Workflow plugin – https://wordpress.org/plugins/oasis-workflow/

    The Pro version has a feature called “Auto Submit”. So once the user submits the post, the system can auto submit the post to a workflow and assign an Administrator to review the post.

    This way the user need not select any user to review their post.

    Hope this helps.

    Hi nuggetsol,
    Thanks for your reply. Is there any way to customize this in order to let the user select an approver?

    Sure.

    You can update the workflow step and uncheck “Assign to all?”. This way it will ask the user to pick an approver for their work.

    You can also customize the workflow as per your needs.

    BTW, the above only works, if the user is submitting the task via the WordPress Admin UI. If the user wants to submit to a workflow from the front end, the only option would be to enable auto submit.

    Hi nuggetsol,
    By enabling auto submit is fine but, how I will let the user choose an approver from the front end?

    With auto submit, you predefine the approver and as such the user need not select anyone for the first step of your workflow.

    For subsequent steps, you will need to use the front end add-on, which provides shortcodes to display the Inbox on the front end – https://www.oasisworkflow.com/extensions/oasis-workflow-front-end-actions

    This way the user can sign off their tasks from the front end.

    Hope this helps.

    Actually I would like the user to select the approver. So, my understanding is that this is not feasible right?

    That’s correct. We do not have a way to select an approver from the front end. The same is only possible via the wp-admin, someone logging into the wp-admin and submitting to workflow.
