Approve a Request (without the link)

Jump to solution

Hello

Sorry about the not reasonable title but I will explain in more details here.

Basically, I have a Doc. Library where I created a workflow which runs when a form request has been raised.

The form status remains Pending until it has been approved.

The Workflow process sends out an notification email to the relevant approver with a link leading to the Approval Page.

The problem is that, once the user deletes the email notification > there is not a simple way of approving it.

My question is how to implement it so the Approver can approve it directly from : (see below)

I also tried the Content Approval > Require content approval for submitted items? > YES

which enables the a Approve/Reject button in the ribbon but it does not work / interact with the actual workflow.

I am confused

if your user selects the workflow status column (hyperlink that normally says "In progress" they will see outstanding workflow tasks.

Or you can add the nintex workflow approval tasks web part to your homepage where users will be able to see all their outstanding workflow tasks.

without seeing any other pending approvals for other managers.

Cassy Freeman  that works great actually  thank you.  The only drawback is that the STATUS column remains empty and does not show the status of the relevant request. Any ideas?

This is the result. and if I untick the "show status" for some reason the time elapsed shifts to the left and the initiator as well.

Hi all

Thank you very much for this answer, it fixes a problem I've had!   Status doesn't show up for me either but that's something I can work on later.

Cheers

Kevin
