Here's my task - I have a list that contains multiple approval sections.
I'm supposed to take the comments (also called "Approver Comments", I believe) from the Workflow Tasks List for each approval, and paste them into the comments section of the parent list (which has versioning activated and has comments appended). So far, I've had no success in being able to take the comments and paste them to the other list. What can I do to make this happen?
Solved! Go to Solution.
you can also create a workflow variable called "WFtaskComments" or whatever name you feel comfortable with and in the flexi task connect your comment box to that variable, then in the workflow you can create an update item action that will set the list column equal to that variable, don't forget to add a "commit pending actions" after the item update action
@SimonMuntz Ok, this does indeed put the comments into the main list item. One thing I did notice is that when the item (in the main list) is modified, the "Modified By" - The area that shows who made the comment, shows the original list item creator, and not the person that made the comment. Is there any way to change this so that the person who made the comment is the one whose name shows up?
