Hello!

I’m new to Nintex, I have a task that will go through (4) employees in order to be completed using State machine, and each has a comment box.

Also, in some cases they will need to return the task to initiator to edit (or correct the data in the form). My question is how can I keep the comments for each one and make it available for other to see.

For example: manager 1 approve the task and write a comment, the task go to manager 2, he should be able to see manger 1 comment and also be able to comment. Manager 3 can see pervious managers comments and so on.

 

I hope that you understand my question.

 

Thanks in advance.

Hi @Yasser.

I've done this a lot.  In the task action, there is a place to store the id of the task that was created.

I then use that ID to get the ApproverComments from the task.

I then write that variable to an append-only multi-line field in the list.

What I end up with is this.

It is important to remember that the name will be the name of the workflow initiator.  There is no way around this because all actions in the workflow are running as the initiator.

 

I hope this helps.

@Yasser , @ethurber since you're using Task ID and Approver's comment from your Workflow Task list, why don't you also get the value from Assigned To field of your Workflow Task list? If you want the Approver's name is specific format then using Set Variables you can get the First and Last names too.

 

Also, if you click "Insert Reference" and go to Common, you do have Last Task Respondent Display Name and Approver Comments.

Re: Save comments

Create a workflow variable for comments, in your flexitask connect your comments sections to the variable if you wish to show it to the submitter send it by mail or create a column in the list and set it equal to the variable after it is rejected for correction, there is a more complex way of doing this which is currently what i am using

 

let me know if you are interested so i can share it with you
