Task Approval through notification mail ? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    I am working on ms PWA and SharePoint. I have implemented the email notifications (Alerts and Reminders), it is working properly. Current functionality works as follows,

    User 1 (resource) : Modify the allotted time estimated and publish the plan. ( change will be added at approval center)

    User 2 (Project Owner) : Receive email notification for pending approval at approval center.

    Now here i need a customization where User 2(Owner) will have extra links to Approve/Reject the change itself through the mail which he/she has received. 
    for example assume following mail,
    The following changes have been updated by resource.
    Reported to : User2
    Project name : XYZ
    Task name : Development 
    Assigned to : User1
    Start :1/1/2013 
    Finish  : 1/2/2013
    work : 16 h
    Remaining work : 16h
    % completion : 0
    Comment : xyz

    (want to add following in mail body)
    Take Action : Approve / Reject 


    Please suggest me how can i modify the system defined body format of notification and perform approval action based on their selection.
