This is the eighth in a series (the series is listed at the bottom) of "How To " Videos that I have created to show .NET Developers how to build document workflow in a SharePoint environment.
In the How to Videos that I produced on "Building Approval Workflow's" and "Escalating Workflow's (for overdue tasks), I kept things simple (focusing on the Workflow) and did not do dynamic lookups of people/users against Active Directory (AD), choosing to "hard code" the users in the workflow.
In this example, I take one of those workflow's (Basic Approval Workflow) and show you how you can do a "Dynamic Lookup or Search" of Active Directory for information (The Manager of a user) using .NET Code (System.DirectoryServices).
