The first logging action here records the odata "comments collection... " shown above ... pulling the comments columns together in the collection var as an array. The For Each here should be outputting each iteration of this to the comments holder text var. The logging action inside the For Each should display each of the Comment Holder contents - but these remain stubbornly empty. The build string should concatenate these Commment Holder values in to an All-Comments text var (the last logging action should show this). Not sure how to progress here.
Share as well the "Query List" action settings as well as write down, what data type you used to store comments along with the task? Is it a plain text field?
I was using the Comments column from the Nintex Task content type - it was a multi-line field, but I am not sure of the setup (whether it was set as plain text). I just tried adding a new multi-line column and using that with plain text set. (The ApproverComments site column you mentioned above was not available on the site columns list under Nintex).
Using the new settings did not change the outcome from previously.
Below is the setup of the Query List action.
(The ApproverComments column you see listed here is a purely local column I created to replace the original Comments multi-line column)
Thank you very much. I can confirm this works now. I will try to make some time soon to write this up with screen shots - so as to be more beneficial to 'borrow-and-adapt' people like me.
Did you write or create an example about this very good solution ?
I am having a requirement to collect Comments / All Comments on a Simple Approval Workflow in SharePoint Online (I am either using the Assign a Task or Assign a Flexi Task for that,).
Below are simple steps to capture comments in Nintex form list:
1) Enable versioning setting in list setting.
2) Create Comment column in list and select "Yes" on "Append Changes to Existing Text" in list comment column.
3) In approval workflow task, use list comment column instead of using Approval comments field of approval workflow task.
I guess this will help.
