I am currently working on a workflow that collects approvals from multiple people and stamps them to the data card. After these approvals are collected I need to automatically check out the drawing to populate the approval fields on the drawing. I then need to create a new PDF containing the approvals and overwrite the existing PDF in the same folder. Has anyone done this?
We basically do the same thing except we only have one approval. During the transition to Approved we set the required variables under Actions. The last Action in the transition is to Execute Task which runs a EPDM task we've called PDF Creation. This can be set up in the EPDM Administration program using the SWTaskAddIn. This opens the drawing and exports to PDF.
