I have created a list on a Project Site to capture change control for my project so I will select the start approval template.

start approval when a new item is added

  1. Select the Site Address in the drop down.
  2. Select the List Name.
  3. Assign the approval to someone in your organization.
  4. Add an action if needed.

I just want the approver to review the change request and approve or reject it. No other actions are needed.

When someone adds an item to this list in my SharePoint site, a workflow will kick off. The person assigned to approve the task receives an email with a link to the list on SharePoint site and the option to Approve or Reject.
