I have a list that I have a workflow on. The workflow sends a task e-mail. Every thing works as expected.

When the workflow runs the user gets an e-mail in Outlook they can click on to open the Infopath form for the task.

What I want to do is add details of that list item to the Infopath form in the task e-mail.

Any idea on how to do this?

I know it is not possible to do this on the Initiation form. I am trying to do it on the task e-mail form.


Add a data source on your info path form & the make list as that & based on the item ID you will be able to get the list item details


  • I can add the data source but how can I filter for the item that the workflow was run on? Jun 7 '16 at 21:27

  • But that field does not exist in the task e-mail sub-workflows. Jun 8 '16 at 20:27
  • You can use the itemID & then it should have TaskID when the task is generated.. could you please explain what you are trying to do.
