I want to show the user only his tasks on specific list, and show him the option to approve and reject from that view.

In order to get his tasks I have used the below code:

        var traineePromise = $().SPServices.SPGetListItemsJson({
        webURL: _spPageContextInfo.webAbsoluteUrl,
        CAMLQuery: "<Query><Where>\
                     "+ workflowname + "\
                      <Eq><FieldRef Name='AssignedTo'/><Value Type='Integer'>"+ _spPageContextInfo.userId + "</Value></Eq>\
                      <Membership Type='CurrentUserGroups'><FieldRef Name='AssignedTo'/></Membership>\
        listName: "Workflow Tasks"

    $.when(traineePromise).done(function () {

Unfortunately, it's not working

    What is the value of workflowname? You say it's not working.. What is not working exactly? Are you getting errors? – Abbas Mar 21 '18 at 13:48
  • You can replace AssignedTo portion with <FieldRef Name='AssignedTo'/><Value Type='Integer'><UserID/></Value> - This is the equivalent of using the [Me] token in views msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/office/aa544234.aspx – theChrisKent Mar 21 '18 at 14:16

you can also achieve it by using REST API

/_api/web/lists/getbytitle('workflowname ')/items?$filter=Approver eq ‘username'

  • are you sure I can use workflowname inside "getbytitle"? – Eyal Segal Mar 21 '18 at 13:39
  • yes... look at this codeproject.com/Articles/1134731/… – Melad Batta Mar 21 '18 at 13:42
  • 'workflowname' above should be the name of the tasks list. Filtering on the workflow would be done in the $filter portion – theChrisKent Mar 21 '18 at 14:17
  • To be hones, I don't succeed :( – Eyal Segal Mar 22 '18 at 12:13
