How to close Workflow Tasks Tab automatically

Jump to solution

Hello,

I have developed a Nintex form which gets assigned to the user.  User gets mail notification and can open the form through the link provided in mail.  On clicking the link a Nintex form opens in Workflow Tasks tab.  User takes action and submit the form.  On submission the form disappears however Workflow Tasks tab remains open.  Is this the default behavior?  If yes, is there a way to close Workflow Tasks tab automatically.

Please help.  Thanks

Sunil

Hey Sunil,

I'm not sure what you mean with "Workflow Tasks tab", do you mean the workflow task list?

Best regards,

Jan

Hi Sunil,

unfortunately I don't think that's possible to automatically close the browser, however it's possible to change the page you get when you close the form by adding in the notification email link a parameter &Source=NewURL 

In that way when a user submit or close the task, he isn't redirected to workflow tasks list but to the URL you have specified in your source parameter.

Giacomo is right.

but you can redirect to a page that closes itself on a load and so mimic closing tab/window after task response.

Thanks a lot Giacomo and Marian,

 

User receives email with a link as  On clicking  here a Nintex Form opens.

Will you kindly guide how to add &Source=NewURL  in this email notification link.  I tried to do it but failed.

Thanks

- open task configuration

- go to task notification tab

- click into mail body

- new ribbon appears, click edit source

- within source find link to approval URL

- add your redirect URL (absolute or relative). note that for security reasons URL has to be within the same site

Great,

Thanks a lot Marian and Giacomo,

It worked as expected.  Also I got to know about HTML edit source.

Thanks once again

Cheers
