Adding a Reference in to a List

I created a workflow where it allows a reviewer to approve or reject a request. I have it set up so the reviewer receives an email with an approval link. I also created a page where I added the list as a webpart and the reviewer can see what requests still need to be reviewed. Is it possible to add the approval link for that specific request on a list so I can display it on the page I created- this way the reviewer can click on the approval link directly from the list as opposed to going to their email? I attached a picture of my list. Similar to the 'In Progress' link, I was hoping to add a link for that requests Approval URL.

Re: Adding a Reference in to a List

Hey Laura! You can do this no problem. I actually just wrote a blog post about this a few days ago. My solution is in o365 but it works the same way.

Link a Nintex Task URL to a SharePoint List – Chadd Talks 

Let me know if you have any questions!

Re: Adding a Reference in to a List

Thanks so much Chadd! I'm a little new to this so bare with me. I unfortunately don't see a 'Assign a Task' option within Workflow Actions. The only options I have that are task related are Assign Flexi task, Assign to-do task, and Task reminder. I included a screenshot of the beginning of my workflow. Is it possible I'm running on an older version of Nintex?

Re: Adding a Reference in to a List

Sorry It's a little confusing. I'm using o365 version of nintex. It's a little different. I don't have access to an on prem version (which is what you're using) So I can't show you exactly. Look in the action settings of the approval action. There should be an option for you to assign a variable to a Task ID. It's at the bottom somewhere. If you don't see it in the approval action, you might have to use the assign a flexi task action, it works the same way.
