Approval Workflows in SharePoint 2010

We're currently working on developing a custom approval workflow in SharePoint 2010 for one of our clients.



Our client needs an approval process for documents in which documents are sent to one or more reviewers for comments / approval. Once all reviewers are happy with the document, the document will be sent for a final stage of approval - the Quality Assurance approval stage. If the QA is happy, the document will be published.

Our client is currently using SharePoint Foundation 2010, and unfortunately there is only one workflow available within this version of SharePoint - the three state workflow, which is not suitable. For this reason we've decided to build a custom workflow in visual studio.
