workflow email variables To CC BCC RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm working with SPD 2010. My workflow works fine, except for a workflow lookup problem.

    In my WF step 'then Email Workflow Context:Initiator' when I click, I get a 'Define E-mail Message'. The To: field has 'Workflow Context:Initiator' in it. I then add 'Workflow Context:Associator' to the CC: field(no quotes). It publishes fine, and this email is actually sent. The To: field is populated with the 'initiator' as expected. The CC: field says literally :

    Workflow Context:Associator

    I've tried Workflow Context:Associator; [Workflow Context:Associator], and [%Workflow Context:Associator%] with no satisfaction.

    Note that when I click on the CC: field, I get an email address type dialog box. There are no '...' or 'fx' button attached to these fields. 

    Thanks

  • What if you click the 'select users' icon next to the CC field, and select 'workflow lookup for a user', click Add and select the person that you want. That should work.

  • That works fine. However I need to use a variable or task lookup to populate the CC field
