I have a multi-line text field which contains updates on the item, so I have append changes turned on, and therefore, all the comments are stored in version history, not in the text field. I need to extract the last update from the version history to include in a workflow email notification. Image of the text I am referring to is attached. Any suggestions?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Had a very similar task in the past. Best solution for us was not to use the versioned comment field but writing every comment entered in one field summarized in a multi line text field that is moderated by the workflow. This way you have everything in one field and you don't rely on the versioning stuff as old versions could be deleted by policies and so on.
So basically a workflow grabs the text from field 1, combines all comments in field 2 and clears field 1 afterwards so it's free for a new comment. In your form you would show field 2 as read only and have your comment history there.
Would that work for you?
would this help Nintex webserice xml to xslt processing with date filed ?
you need not necessarily use XSLT to pick data from result, you could use query XML
No I did not find this helpful at all. What i am looking for is an explanation of how to use the Lists.asmx's web service method GetVersionCollection that you referenced in your first reply.
I apologize...I marked you not helpful by mistake...No, I am still trying to figure out how to use Marian's method, but might end up going with Enrico's method.
