Nintex Workflow O365 - There is a URL that is stored in a column on the list item. I need to display that url (if it is populated) on the task approval. Is that possible? Note: I am not using Nintex forms.
I was able to do this in a Flexi Task by adding some coding to the Description of the task. When you add in a description and anchor tag with the reference it will display on the task form. The flexi task form is the url /_layouts/15/NintexWorkflow/ApproveReject.aspx
From Flexi Task
The reference to "link" is a hyperlink column in my list.
The default form (non nintex custom form)
So when you click on text, it goes to the link I defined in the referenced "link" field
Unfortunately, this solution is not an option for me because Flexi Task is not available in O365.
You know I totally didn't pay attention that you said O365, my bad. But the Assign a Task action also has a description field. I'm not able to check it on my site right now, but does this method still have the same effect? The point is to use the description field, not so much the specific type of task. If you can test it out, let me know. Thanks,
I'm trying to include a link to a form in a task description, using Nintex 365, so I tried putting in <a href="link">text</a> in the description and it printed exactly that - <a href="link">text</a> in the text description.
Andrew Glasser I really appreciate your response here, I was working to accomplish a similar need this morning within O365 and this approach works on that platform as well.
I was trying to simply leverage the editItemUrl variable within the edit form itself, but neither the "view code" mode nor does the "insert hyperlink" functionality allow the use of variable injection. So I could get my edit item link in the form, but not in a clickable fashion.
Katherine Collins Alan Maier,
If you're using the "Assign a Task" workflow action, you can jump into that action's properties and update the Description field to include you link using an HTML anchor:
Thanks again Andrew Glasser - saved me some time here!
