I have what I feel is a very straightforward requirement but I cannot figure out how to implement. The scenario is this:

  • User A creates a supply order request.
  • User B approves or rejects.
  • User C also gets notified if the request is approved, as User C actually orders the supplies.

I have made a copy of the default Approval reusable workflow that I edited to send an email to User C in the approval step, but that does not give me any access to the underlying list item to include relevant details in the email.

  • For future reference, please tag/include which version of SharePoint you're using to help ensure answers are relevant to your SP Version
