I have a workflow of SharePoint 2013 and I need to generate a workflow task to assign to a specific user, this user must enter information in a field of the task list, before approving or rejecting this task.

How can I get that field of the task list from the current workflow?

Greetings and thanks.

  • Create a variable to store your Task Field Value.
  • Set this variable to a Task Field Value from the Association Task List based on the Task ID as shown below

      Set Variable: Value In Associated Task List to Association: Task List:Due Date

enter image description here

  • How do I get the tasks id from the created task process? I am only able to save the outcome to a variable, not the task id.

    Okay, I have now got it working using Field "Instace ID" with Value "Workflow Conext:Instance ID".
