I have a list with a workflow setup to email the Business Manager whenever a modification has been made to an item. Setting up that workflow is easy. I am having an issue with, I want the body of the email to contain only the information that has been changed, is this possible?
Solved! Go to Solution.
You have successfully created a SharePoint alert with Nintex . But seriously, I would not try to overengineer what SharePoint does out to the box.
Now to answer your questions, you could have the workflow check for value changes. This complicates a lot of things and depends on the number of fields in your list. If you only had to check 3 fields (A,B,C), then you could set a workflow to start when item created and it stores values A,B,C in columns VA, VB, VC. Then if its updated your workflow would compare if values in A !=VA etc. If they don't then you would email the manager with the new value in A and the old value as the value in VA
Again, I would not do this. I would assign an alert on the list and call it a day. The alerts out of the box shows the information changed and can report it daily, weekly, or even immediately.
