Hello Nintex Ninjas!
I have been working on an app that contains complex approval process(serial then parallel) with multiple level of approvers. Been making good progress, until I got stuck in this action.(issue explained in the image as well, but in case it wasn't readable, its added below)
- Got a requirement for workflow wherein a whole group wantd to be assigned task and anyone could then approve/reject it.
- Start a task process to SharePoint group works great for the requirement. When anyone from the group approves the task, the rest of the groups get theirs tasks cancelled.
- But I want to collect data for two fields from approvers, that I then want to save it back in the list.
-I have been able to get the description, comments of approvers via GUID=taskID(WF variable) in 'Assign a task' action but, option to save task ID from 'Start a Task process' seems to be unavailable.
- I thought I could get Description and use Reg. Expression to get UserID & Email and though reg expression works great for stripping text, because the taskID couldn't be saved, I am not able to get value of 'Descirption' of the task in 'Start a task process', split it and save it back to list. Main requirement for the app is that I get the User ID and Email once one of the approvers in SharePoint group has acted on it. I know I must be missing something or overlooked a setting, either ways, am sure you guys will know the answer and steer me in the right direction towards the solution!
