I'm attempting to create a workflow for replies to discussions posted. What I am trying to achieve is getting the subject from the original discussion post (Content-Type: Discussion) to display in the workflow email set for replies (Content-Type: Message).

Issue: When the workflow to send out the notification for the reply is sent, the subject is blank. From what I have read, could be because the original entry is saved in the Discussion: Content-Type and the replies are being saved in the Message: Content-Type. The subject is being lost.

I have tried the following:

  • Creating a variable and setting it to Subject, then calling the variable
  • Using Current Type: Subject

SharePoint Designer View: enter image description here

My Result: (Subject comes out blank) enter image description here
