I am using the OOTB approval functionality in my own workflow for an internal system I'm building. However, SharePoint comes with very misleading info on the default approval form such as "This item will become visible to all users." next to the approve option. Approval form

I would like to change this text as it is totally irrelevant to the actual process I have in place (when an item is approved the original user is notified, but no one else can see it). It will confuse users as it looks currently.

I've searched around but can't find much. Any help would be much appreciated, thanks.

  • Just delete the unecessary HTML text inside the form.aspx page? – Brandon C. Jun 23 '14 at 7:54
  • So you want only "AssignedTo" to see the task? – Aanchal Jun 23 '14 at 7:54
  • @BrandonC. that's what I want to do yes, but I can't find the form.aspx page for the approval form.. any idea where it might be? – Henry Cole Jun 23 '14 at 8:10
  • @Aanchal yes, but I've already done that, now I just want the form to show my own text. – Henry Cole Jun 23 '14 at 8:10
  • Are you using Sharepoint designer? – Brandon C. Jun 23 '14 at 8:28
