This sounds simple (unless i'm missing something)
So the initial ticket (step 1) can have an approval process tied to it. You can make it so that when a ticket has been Approved that it changes the status of that ticket to Approved (or whatever other Status name you want to define).
Then have the Action Rule in step 2 only trigger on 'criteria didn't match before..." on the first tab and "status = approved" (and probably also "request type = your request type name, also) on the 2nd tab.
Alternatively, you could have the 1st step in the Task have an approval process tied to it, and then you could have a setting on that first "Task Element" that says to only proceed when Status = Approved for the first task element.
I'll definitely give it a try. thank you.
