I have a Task that was created by a 2013 workflow, through either the Assign a task command or Start a task process command. I have a second workflow that wants to use Update List Item to approve or reject that Task when a specific condition occurs.

First, how do I find the appropriate task? By selecting the Tasks list, the lookup allows me to find it by ID, but I don't have the ID of the task.

Second, the field/value combination only allows me to set the Status to Completed. I don't see anything that allows me to set it to Approved or Rejected. Is that possible?


There is a field called Approval Status that I missed. You can find the correct item by using the Workflow Item ID, which is the item related to the task.

edit: You can't update the Approval Status, only search on it.
