I've created an Approval Workflow that runs when an item is added to a list. At creation of a new item, the workflow starts and sends an email to a specific user.

The problem is, I want to add a link inside the email that directs the user to the task page - the place from where he can approve or reject the item.

How can I do that?

How will the user get to complete the task if I don't direct him there by e-mail?

The field that provides the URL to the Approve/Reject page is the [%Current Task:Form_URN] lookup that provides the information.
No building out necessary. Note that this solution will work in SPD 2010 workflows


You need to choose Workflow Context from fx and choose Current Item Url
