Issue with "Context Item Display Name" in Task notification

Jump to solution

L.S.,

Has it already been reported that the default "Context Item Display Name" in a Task notification email is no longer working properly in Nintex Workflow 2013 v3.2.2.10 ? It does have the proper link but the display name is no longer replaced with the Context Item Display Name common property value/Item title. As a workaround one can replace it with a new Link using both Context Item properties though.

KR,

Jean-Pierre

I reported this as a but to Nintex.  I have to run to a meeting, but when I get back I'll post the case number.  They confirmed it was a bug.  I have the same version Nintex that you have.  I have to build my link before the Task now, then insert it as a variable into the Task.

Ok, here are the details.  I reported the issue on February 6th, 2017.  Case number: 00139406 Subject: Flex Task Notification Doesn't Display Item Name after being edited.  It was reported as a bug and sent to the developers on the 13th.  Haven't heard anything since then.  I'm going to send a follow up email.
