I have a 'Complaints' task webpart that's displayed under a (list) display form. The tasks are created by a workflow, when a complaint is created. I can get all of the tasks to appear in the webpart, but I can't filter it - I'm wanting the tasks relating to the specific complaint to appear in the webpart, but I can't seem to get this to work.

I've tried several ways:

  • creating a new calculated field to extract the ID from the hyperlink in the 'Link' column (ID='12'). In the webpart I connected the complaint 'Id' to the new calculated field.

  • Created a new calculated field to extract the Title from the hyperlink in the 'Link' column (ID=12, 'Complaint against B & M Builders'). In the webpart I connected the complaint 'Title' to the new calculated field.

Any ideas how I can get this webpart to work?

Thanks

Ya, unfortunately the Related Item field isn't connectable because it's a link. What I always do is create a column in the Task list that the workflow uses called RelatedId, and whenever a new task is created, have the workflow populate that column with the related content's ID. This way you can do connected web parts and filter.

  • Thank you, I'll give this a go and let you know how I get on. – Haz Mar 11 '14 at 9:43
