I have a bit of a strange request. When using a Flexi Task action the action sends an email to the end user to approve or reject the item. When the end user clicks on the link in the email to review the task, below the approval area in the Item Properties section the fields from the SharePoint list are listed, as seen below:
Is there any way to limit the number of fields being displayed or remove the fields being displayed all together?
Or even better is there a way to display only certain fields of my choice in the Item Properties area?
If someone could help me out on this one I would appreciate it.
Solved! Go to Solution.
as Mike said if you're using Nintex Forms you can just remove the fields you don't want to show.
If you don't use Forms there is still an easy way. In central administration -> Nintex Workflow Management -> Global Settings you can define "task form properties view" . By default its set to Workflow Task View.
So just create a view called Workflow Task View (or whatever the property is set to in your environment) and default SharePoint Forms will just show the fields you defined in that view.
Yes, the workflow task view will only be valid for that specific list as you will probably have different columns in other lists.
So you will need one Workflow Task View per List you have workflow tasks in.
Hello Enrico Knapp,
Thank you for the quick reply. In following the path that you gave me in your original post Central Administration -> Nintex Workflow Management -> Global Settings I have found the Task Form Properties view, as seen below:
But I am not sure where I would go to create a new Workflow Task View. If you could expand on your reply as to how to create a new Workflow Task View for a specific list and how you would apply that new Workflow Task View to the list in questions I would really appreciate it.
Thank you or all of your assistance Enrico.
Sorry for the late reply.
To create a workflow task view just go to the list on which your workflow is running. There you open the list ribbon and hit "create view"
you will have to name the view "Workflow Task View". Afterwards all you need to do is check all the columns you want to show in your actions properties.
Hope this helps.
