second approval by workflow?

ONLY(!) with the functions given in the frontend (Setting - Technical - workflows - workflows - ...) I would like to add an approval stage for a PO (purchase order), so between RFQ+user confirmation and real PO. I have played around for 2 hrs. now and I did it not to work. Goal for the first step would be as follows: 1. a "normal" user creates a RFQ and sends it to the supplier 2. supplier comes back with a price and the user confirms 3. NOW a member of "purchase managers" should again confirm before an official PO is going to be sent out

This could later be extended by certain rules: A) up to 1000 EUR no 2nd approval necessary B) 1001 - 2000 EUR approval of a second user necessary C) more than 2001 EUR managers approval mandatory

I tried to insert a add an item between the confirmed and the router status with an entry in the field "group required". However it did not work. Is it maybe correct just to inset the entry "purchase manager" in the field "group required" of the incoming transition of the router item like shown here: (sorry I can not post porper links) h t t p : / / flic.kr/ps/2zx7nA

However this would only solve a general approval by management. Thanks for your feedback / hints / help.

and additionally I would like to send a mail to the manager (group), that PO... is waiting for approval
