n many cases, a Disposition Approval workflow is set up to start automatically when items expire. If a Disposition Approval workflow is configured to allow users to start it manually, you can start this workflow on a document or library directly from the library or list where it is saved. You must have at least the Edit Items permission to start a workflow. Some workflows may require that you also have the Manage Lists permission to start a workflow.
1. If the list or library is not already open, click its name on the Quick Launch.
If the name of your list or library does not appear, click View All Site Content, and then click the name of your list or library.
2. Point to the name of the document or item for which you want to start a workflow, click the arrow that appears, and then click Workflows.
3. Under Start a New Workflow, click the name of the Disposition Approval workflow that you want to start.
The Disposition Approval workflow starts immediately and creates a Disposition Approval task in the tasks list for the workflow.
