Custom Approval Task form in Workflow RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello

    I have approval workflow with customized info path Approval task. I have added two additional fields to approval task content type as well as on the form.

    When I fill in the data for those two custom fields and click on approve, it doesn't save the data. I tried adding these fields multiple times, but it doesn't show up.

    Is there any setting which I am missing?

    Thanks in advance

  • Hi,

    How did you customize the approval task form?

    Did you add two task form field in the default task form?

    I have created an approval workflow in SPD and added two custom field in Task Form Fields, then it works fine.

    Please try to create a new approval workflow in other list to test.

    If you created a custom workflow task content type, you can refer to:

  • Hello Dean

    Actually, I was adding column from existing columns. When I added as new column on the task form from sharepoint designer, it worked.

    Thanks again for your response.
