Request wait to close until child requests are closed

Is it possible to have an automated step in a workflow that prevents it from moving forward until all child requests are closed? We are using version 7.1 SP8.

Thanks,

Scott

Scott,

We have some functions defined behind the scenes that automaticaaly close the Parent once all the child requests are closed. I am not aware if this can be handled automatically through the tool.

Thanks

Scott, when you set the child relationships just set them as "Predecessor" instead of "Child" and it will set a blocking relationship instead of just an informational one. This will automatically block further action on the parent until that child is closed.

thanks. We try to stay away from doing any customization, so we'll look at the second option.
