Email to Assigned to? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a workflow created and all I want is to send an email to the person in the Assigned to feild (People AD). How to I make the association from a list so that the to:feild picks up the Assigned to?

  • I noticed that I had the assigned to set to allow for multiple people. Once I set Allow multipme selections to "No", it showed up in the workflow lookup. It was not there when allow multiple selections was set to "yes".

  • Hi Corey,

     

    Assuming you are using SharePoint Designer to create the workflow. After you add the action of "send an Email", you need perform the following steps:

     

    1.click the button like a book in the right side of the "To:"

    2.Select workflow lookup and click Add.

    3.If the "Assign to" field is in the current list, Please make

      Source: Current Item

      Field: Assign to

     

      If this field is not in current list, you can define a lookup following this article:

    Hope this helps.

     

    Thanks,
