I have an approval that is assigned to a SharePoint security group due to shift based workforce - assignment to the group allows flexibility so that whoever is on-shift can respond swiftly.
Only problem, the Approver Name reported back via task is the name of the SharePoint Security group, not the individual who approved the task.
I've managed to get this kind of working using the Task 'Modified By' attribute, but the value returned is:
Wondering if anyone would be able to help me with a regular expression, thank you.
I tried following this blog post, but got a bit lost... https://community.nintex.com/t5/Community-Blogs/How-to-get-Task-Comments-and-more-in-Nintex-Workflow... This seems to be the correct way to approach this issue. If anyone knows of a step-by-step tutorial would be great.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Thank you Simon, I ended up fixing with the help of Leigh today, with a Replace substring in string action where there was only one approver required from the group.
However I do have another workflow where all members of the sharePoint security group are assigned the task, so I will definitely use the For Each loop in this situation.
In case anyone else needs help with this I've attached the pictures below. The regular expression suggestion in the another post is not feasible as it isn't standard. Thanks again Simon.
