Creating an approval task workflow. Need to have another field added in the reassignment form view to allow the user to select an item from a drop down menu. I am able to display the new field in the form view but I am not able to retrieve the value. I used the New Task Form Fields section from the Designer section. I am fairly new to Sharepoint overall. I am using Sharepoint Designer 2010 and InfoPath 2010.
The field filed is kind of a task form field . If you want get these fields value follow this:
Click on workflow to edit the task process. Click on Change the behavior of a single task . Define a workflow variable . Add a Set workflow variable in "When a task completes" section . Click on value and select "Current task:Approve(1)" as data source . Is field from source drop downlist you can see all the task form fields . Choose your field and click OK .
