issues with build string action

Dear Everyone,

I built an approval workflow:

1. Create a SharePoint list named Email Templates, to configure Email Subject, Email Body (Multiple lines of text,

2. Create a SharePoint list named Tracking list

3. Build a list workflow in the Tracking list by using Nintex Workflow 2013

     3.1 Get Email Body from the Email Templates list by using Set variable action

     3.2 Build a string by using Build String action

    3.3 Add a Request Approval action and configured as below

After running the workflow, I got email notification as below:

Seem the Email Subject is ok, the email body seem doesn't work.

This workflow worked fine on SharePoint 2010, but doesn't work on SharePoint 2013.

Please help to give me solutions to solve this issue.

Many Thanks,

Phu.

Re: issues with build string action

Hi Shaikha Eid,

Please prefer the following steps to solve this issue:

1. use function fn-XmlDecode to decode value

2. If we have using some variable such as {Common:Approve}, {Common:ApprovalUrl}... in the email template then we should add them into email body

And then we should hide these variable by adding a tag <span>

<span style="color: transparent; font-size: 0px; display: none;">

Please feel free let me know when you have any questions.

Regards,

Phu

Re: issues with build string action

I would suggest to key the mail body into to into the message form itself instead of building a string. That might be a workaround until anybody finds a better answer.
