I am trying to make the default SharePoint notifications for tasks a little better and more suitable for my cause. But no matter what I change in this pseudo-code-thing, it always returns errors (even if I only add a dot...).

For clarification: I use the SharePoint Designer 2013. In a workflow I create a new approval -> go to the menu of the approval by clicking on it -> Change the behavior of a single task -> edit email notification within "Task pending" step.

I really don't know why it wouldn't allow me to change a thing as it is possible and not even in the "real" code of a SharePoint. I hope you can help me with this issue!

I have attached both the current task notification message as well as the editor box for the message. editor boxCurrent message

Error message

  • I have edited the email of tasks recently and all are ok, can you show the error? – Diego Hillesheim Sep 30 '14 at 17:57
  • It just says that there is an error but it can't be displayed. – chrissik Sep 30 '14 at 18:28
  • Shows no code? Sends the screen where you find that there is an error. – Diego Hillesheim Sep 30 '14 at 18:31
  • @DiegoHillesheim I have uplaoded the error message. – chrissik Sep 30 '14 at 18:35
  • Are you using the "Copy" function? – Diego Hillesheim Sep 30 '14 at 18:43

As time is of the essence on this topic, I just deleted everything and now it works. I don't know why it did't work the first time because I did everything exactly the same in my second try. However, it works. Thank you guys for the support!
