Help with Workflow

I have attached a workflow below that is almost behaving how I want. Basically I would like the workflow to be submitted...reviewed...and then either approved or returned for editing. Currently the approval process works but the returned for editing option is really rejecting the submission and the work is lost.

I think I'm close to having this figured out but need the reviewer to be able to resubmit to author for further adjustments while saving their work.

    Though I am new to Cascade, I believe what you need to do is create an Unordered Step call it something like "Author Edit". Then create an action on your reviewer step to go to that step instead of using Previous Step. That will maintain the changes the user made but send it back for further edit. Then add an action to the Author Edit step to go back to the reviewer step to complete the circle.

    Hope that helps,

    Sorry for the messy post. Let's try that again with an attachment instead.

    Thanks for the help. Do I have to specify the user in the unordered step 'pruser'?

    I would like the user to be automatically based upon whomever initiated the original edit.

    Oops, I forgot to add the "assignToWorkflowOwner" trigger. Added that trigger and that should do it for you. You still have to supply a default user or group to assign to but it should go back to the original person. Attached an updated workflow. And that pruser is a user in my system, you would put in a user or group in your system.

    That is exactly what I was looking for. Thanks!
