I am working with Office 365 where I have created a workflow using SharePoint Designer, which has few approvals.

The requirement here is:

  • In the task creation email sent to the approver, can we provide a link that directly opens the edit form of the task for approver for approval of the task?
  • There is a link in the task creation email, that redirects to the display form of the Task but I need a link that redirects to the edit form directly.

I am even using a custom content type in the Workflow Task List for custom Task Outcome values and have created a custom edit form for the same in designer under Workflow Task List.

Copy the link from the approval form and include it in the email being sent.

You will have to include a reference to the task-id.



For the second part, you'd just need to add:


to the end of the url above to redirect another page or site.
