Retrieve Workflow Task ID at end of Approval URL string

Jump to solution

I've read through many a forum thread and I have yet to find an answer to this that doesn't involve some convoluted method to achieve.  Here's an example Approval URL:

 

http://farmname/sites/dsmre/sme90/Lists/Workflow%20Tasks/EditForm.aspx?ID=2659

 

If anyone can instruct me on how to retrieve that unique identifier at the end of the URL (2659 in the example), I would really appreciate it!

 

NOTE:  I'm aware that these URL's can be inserted into task notification/reminder/escalation emails through the task's configuration tabs.  However, my users' specifications for email notifications are not achievable through the task configuration--it's not granular enough.

 

Thanks in advance

Hi,

I am sorry to hear that the references do not suit your needs as this is the only non convoluted way to get the task ID before the task has been completed.

That's disappointing...is there a consensus on which solution works best?
