In a parallel approval task, how do I get the name of the person who approved the task?
On the Office 365 version you can get the "Approver Comments" item property and then extract the Approver with a regular expression.

There is a Last Task Respondent Display Name. I guess you would have to set that at the end of each parallel branch.
In the Approved branch of each task. Give them different variable names.
Thanks for the fast reply!
I'm using Nintex for SharePoint Online; not sure if that makes a difference. I'm not seeing this item. Looked under:
Perhaps, I'm not looking in the right place. Can you tell me where to find
Last Task Respondent Display Name
When you use the action 'Set Variable'....you can click on 'References'. There you will see the Common tab.
Yes, it appears this is a limitation of the Office 365 version, "Last Task Respondent Display Name" simply doesn't exist.
Fernando, thanks for the link.
That's a shame. 2010 displays it and what is supposed to be better it does not.
Indeed! Many people are holding their breath for feature parity.
If I read the the Approver Comments" item property it always empty I'm using Nintex on Office365 and lazy approval. Any ideas how to get the approvers name?
"Approver Comments" in O365 looks to be associated with a column that doesn't exist, I've never been able to get this approach to work. I generally leverage a Query List action on the Task List to lookup the comments based on the TaskID.
