I'm in the process of creating a SharePoint designer approval process, based on the OOTB Approval workflow.

One of the customisations required, is for the titles of tasks generated by the workflow to fit a certain certain structure. I'm able to modify the title of the Approval tasks ("Please approve...") style tasks without issue, but I would also like to be able to alter the Change Request tasks title ("A change request...") but I can't seem to find any property to configure this.

Am I missing an obvious parameter somewhere? Is there a simple way to accomplish this without resorting to nasty string compares?

I'm using SharePoint 2010, if that makes any difference?

I have the very same situation. Did you ever find a solution to this? (My apologies if I'm posting this question in a section dedicated to Answers) Thanks a million, Ben – user5850 Nov 30 '11 at 10:15
@BenLenihan Unfortunately no, we ended up just living with the behaviour. – Neil White Nov 30 '11 at 14:03
Any news on an answer to this? Neil, it's been a long time since you posted, but we have the same problem and are looking for an answer. – bgmCoder Jun 7 at 15:47
