Extend approval flow after 30 days

Hello, 

 

I am looking for a way to extend and re-send approvals when the workflow has passed 30 days to ensure the workflow keeps running and the approvers keep having a chance to approval items (if not done within the first 30 days).

 

Essentially for Approvals going to Managers, we want them to be reminded every 7 days and once 30 days has lapsed, a new Approval flow should be generated and sent back to the manager again.

Equally for the Approvals going to Exec Directors, we want a new Approval flow to be generated after 30 days has lapsed.

 

Hope this makes sense to someone!!

 

Appologies for the exessively complicated workflow!

ESSENTIALLY AFTER THIS STEP WE WANT MANAGERS TO RECEIVE REMINDERS FOR THESE APPROVALS EVERY 7 DAYS UNTIL ACTION HAS BEEN TAKEN AND OBVIOUSLY NEW APPROVALS RE-GENERATED AFTER 30 DAYS HAS LAPSED.
