Approval workflow generates native announcements when tasks are created within it.
These announcements lacks links to docfolder, workflow history etc, so we have made our own announcements event handler.
But there is a very cool feature inside native announcements - Open Task... When you click it, Task form opens from inside Outlook ... so user can approve document without even opening web.
How can implements this feature to html generated announcement?
Based on my understanding, for this issue, it is not easy to use ‘Open this Task’ button directly in your custom task email notification, you can try to generate this function in your email body to open the task, the following thread provide a workaround
for it, please try the steps in it to check whether it works:
