Parallel Approvals and Notifying Modifier

Hi,

 

I'm implementing a parallel approval similar to the one described here http://www.razorleaf.com/2009/10/voting-in-epdm-workflow/ (I'm not using voting though... just need the two people identified as approvers to approve).  However, I've noticed a fundamental limitation for my needs, which is that I want to notify the person who submitted the file for review if the review was not approved (using the "modifier" workflow notification through a rejection transition).  The notification will work fine if the first person reviewing rejects the file.  However, since the "modifier" notification inherently only sends to the last user who changed the state, then if the file was approved by Approver A, but then rejected by Approver B, then the notification will go to Approver A instead of the user who submitted the file for review.  Does anyone know of a workaround for this issue?

 

Thanks,

Sally
