This video (#5 in the series of How To Videos on SharePoint/MOSS 2007 "Document" Workflow with Visual Studio) addresses one of the most common questions/needs: "How can I build an Escalation workflow in SharePoint?".  It turns out that this is a very Advanced Workflow scenario and therefore will take me a bit longer to demonstrate in video than some of the other videos that I've produced.

In the video I show how to escalate a task based on an expired (i.e., Overdue) Task Due Date, and automatically sending emails to the Original Owner of the Task and the person who has been Re-Assigned the task (using Outlook email/tasks).
