    I've setup a workflow where we basically have an editor, an approver, and then it gets pushed live.  I've got a special case where an editor can also be an approver, but we don't want them to be able to approve their own content, only other content added by other editors.  Is this possible and if so how?

    Hello Chris,

    We do not support this case. You should implement your own logic to achieve this. One way is to modify the workflow to throw an exception  if the current user is the editor of the content item. The result will be an alert  when the editor try's to approve his own content. You can download the xaml files from your account and map the templates through Administration >> Settings >> Advanced >> Virtual Path Provider settings


    All the best,

    Hi Teodor,

    Would you be able to provide me any sample code as to how to modify the workflow?  I haven't actually worked with .NET workflows before.

    Hello Chris,

    You can take a look at this blog post explaining how you can extend workflow. Please note that modifying workflows requires Professional or Enterprise Edition license.
