One common business requirement is to direct various tasks to a user’s supervisor(s) for approval, feedback or review. For most organizations, the supervisor’s or manager’s information is stored in Active Directory. The Active Directory fields can be integrated into SharePoint via the user profile import service. With SharePoint 2010 Designer, a new out-of-the-box feature is the ability to query Active Directory fields that are imported into the SharePoint 2010 user profiles. Additionally, user profile fields that do not exist in Active Directory can also be manually created inside SharePoint central administration user profile properties. These custom properties can also be queried from the Designer workflow.
