How to call a trigger through an approval process?

We have an approval process and I want to call a trigger without updating any field. Is it possible to call a trigger through approval process?

Hi,

 

There are four types of workflow actions available;

  • Task
  • Email alert
  • Field update
  • Outbound message

So You can use a hidden field and update it during the approval process. Using that updating u can invoke a trigger. Otherwise there is no method to invoke a trigger in workflow and approval process.
