Yep it does seem to be the case that if I put the variable in the Task Description, the HTML does get stripped out on the Approve/Reject form. If I put in the email body directly, it displays it on the email just fine. I guess I'll just have to make do with this.

Thanks so much!

@kei

What did you want to do? Maybe I've already figured it out?

Oh I simply wanted the variable's value including HTML to be preserved when it's displayed on the approve/reject page in SP. I understand that it's possible on the email task sent out, but I'm talking about the SP page.
I hope this makes sense.

You want the HTML Table to be displayed on a SharePoint Page?

I did this with a Wikipage I had a WF that would create a Wikipage Name the page and in the body I added my HTML and it worked great.

I've attached a screenshot. Hopefully this would make it clearer.

It's the task approval page. The encircled text is supposed to be a table split up into two rows.

Hmmm I feel like this can be done!

Can you try this update the "Additional Security Access" field. You should be able to update the field with a Value that value would be the m_txt ( you need to put it in another HTML table, so the m_txt variable in the <html><body>Variable ></html></body>, you get the idea).

that way it will show up in the field. you want try this in a wiki page just to make sure it works there first.

'Additional Security Access' isn't a real field. It's just static text used as a header.

I'm not trying to create a page through a workflow based on this value. This is just the default task approval page generated by the Flexi task.

It's the page you're sent to when you view details on the email notification you get asking you to approve or reject the task.

The page URL ends in /_layouts/15/NintextWOrkflow/ApproveReject.aspx
