I have a workflow designed for calendar events. As soon as the user adds an item, I initiate the workflow to send an email to the manager for approval.

For example (I edit the workflow in SP designer for customized email message),

Dear Manager,

Please approve the following event: Event details 

(FYI I already implemented it, but I am not sure how to do the next step).

Please approve by clicking the link ["Approve/Reject"][1]

--- Now this will directly go to the following window (workflow task edit)

When I searched for answer, people were telling to add workflow task list's "Edit task" button (or link) in email. But How can I add this button (or link) in email?

Assuming you are using SharePoint Designer to build the workflow, you most likely have created a Task process for which you could use [%Current Task:Form_URN%]

  • Worked perfectly. The dates are displayed weird. I use [%Current List:End Date%] but it displays Monday, January 01, 0001. List is a calendar here. May I know how to solve it?
