how can I link task to list item. I need to link between the related content field from task list and Name (linked to document with edit menu) field from the list itself. I need to email the subordinate that is exist in task list. I did the below and I tried to print it in an email and it shows empty value. nothing is there, for that it is not sending any emails to the subordinate.

enter image description here

  • Did you try to change the return field as "Email address" ? – Sohail Shaikh Oct 31 '18 at 5:21
  • yes I did, still not working @SohailShaikh – Arwa Oct 31 '18 at 5:22
  • What is stored in the "Related Content" field in Tasks List?? – Ganesh Sanap Oct 31 '18 at 9:05
  • @GaneshSanap the list item Name – Arwa Oct 31 '18 at 9:33
  • Is it stored as a name or as lookup to the list item(with ID)? – Ganesh Sanap Oct 31 '18 at 9:44

This is because the work email or email address is not associated in the AD or User Profile Service with that value of "Subordinate".

Please check with other Subordinate values.

  • no it is from AD. when I go to task list I can see the name there in subordinate. put when I did as the screenshot to send him email. No approval task will go to him and the workflow status will be completed. – Arwa Oct 31 '18 at 6:12
  • @Arwa It is associated with the "email address" and not the name. – Sohail Shaikh Oct 31 '18 at 6:26
  • so what can I do. Actually the subordinate field is a customization of an approval form. for that I need to get the names from the task list, but it is not working @Sohail Shaikh – Arwa Oct 31 '18 at 6:29
  • @Arwa Are you using SP 2013 workflow? If yes, is the User Profile Service configured running? – Sohail Shaikh Oct 31 '18 at 6:31
  • yes it is 2013 and the User Profile Service already configured – Arwa Oct 31 '18 at 6:32
