I have a SharePoint 2013 platform Workflow where i start an approval Task:

a) I currently use "Assign a task" action and use the Task Id return field to get approval comments from the task b) I changed the action to "Start a task process" (more people involved), but it doesn´t return task id.

How can i get the value of the task id (approver)? In alternative is there a workaround to get the comments (a field from the task list) from the approver?

When using "Start a task Process" action, there is no OOB way to retrieve the task Id.

As a workaround, I suggest you use "Assign a task" action instead of "Start a task process".

Or you can switch to use SharePoint 2010 platform workflow instead of SharePoint 2013 platform workflow.

Reference for you.
