One way to do this would be to have your multi-column lookup list stored as a separate list in SharePoint (Maybe you already have that I'm not clear). When you then add a lookup column to your 'main' list that refers to this lookup values list you can select which additional fields to include. You could, for example, include Name and Age. When including ...

There are a couple options in your Nintex workflow, you could use the calculate a date operation or do a math operation or do a combination of both. Get the value of the coilumn in your math operation, multiple it by -1 and output it to a variable. In your calculate date operation set the month to the value you calculated in the math operation and ...

Use a Set workflow variable action to create a new string variable called fullName. In it, set the value to be the Current Item, Created By field returning Display Name. Then use that variable in your subject.

@Chaholl's answer is correct but if you need, as was our case, the url value from a field in the lookup item, this won't be sufficient as it is not exposable under "additional fields", as are some other field types. In this case you would need what you are suggesting yourself, a workflow: that runs whenever an item is created or updated that copies you ...

I'm assuming CASAMT2 is a workflow variable. Make sure it is type 'number'. When you are setting the variable, what are you selecting for the 'Return Field As' option? You should select 'Double' or 'Currency' if either of those are available.

I've done this by using an Initiation Form Parameter called nullString of type Single Line of Text, and not setting the Default value. Then I can set values and variables elsewhere equal to this parameter.

I implemented a very similar solution for our news section. What I ended up doing was: I used the built in Target Audience field SharePoint offers (you might need to enable this feature). In audience targeting you can create SharePoint groups, Global Audiences or Distribution/Security Groups (groups for Team1 and Team2 for example). In the workflow you can ...

The task outputs a list item ID. Use that variable to look up to your task list to find the item and extract the comment field into a variable. Use that variable in your emails.

If you do not want to do development, then I would create a simple workflow that uses the workflow action to get the manager's info and then save that to a custom column. The workflow would need to run on creation of a new item, and would set it soon after the record is initially saved. If this is purely for display purposes, it is also possible to create ...

In SharePoint Designer workflows, you can look up the manager of a user using the Lookup Manager of a User action. The Created By field stores your account. You can use the Utility actions to extract the username from domain\user and append @domain.com to that and then utilize it as needed. If you simply need the email address to send an email, that is ...

Why not just create a workflow local variable on your first workflow to contain the template ID for the second workflow, and then use that to build your approval link?

Ok, I figured it out. The OOTB append-only comment option did not work as I expected it to. Every time a user would edit an item, it would remove the comments. I ended up using the workflow to solve this, and using a non-versioned list. check if the approver comments are empty if approver comments are there, set the comments column to the approver ...

Are you sure that the column you're writing to has "Append Changes to Existing Text" enabled? (You have to enable versioning first.) The Comments Site Column doesn't have it enabled by default; you have to do it in the list settings. I'd suggest that you manually edit an item and make sure that the edits are appending. The workflow should simply mimic what ...

The problem is with your DesignerType attributes in your ACTIONS files. Since you want to set these to variables you should switch these lines: <FieldBind Field="DocumentLibraryLink" Text="Link to the document library" Id="3" DesignerType="TextArea"/> <FieldBind Field="DocumentLibraryResultName" Text="Result name of to the document library" Id="4" ...
