Making Task Descption of a Standard Task Dynamic

0 Kudos


I have an standard task for approval, the same task is used in the two workflows (Termination Workflow and Leave Request Workflow). The Task description is used to provide a short description of the work item in the UWL (Text that appears below).

The description in both the workflows has to be different, is it possible to dynamically pass the Task Description ??

This can be done by creating two approval tasks one for each workflow but I am having one task and different description.

Yes it is possible. Create a conatiner in your workflow of the type char or string and pass the required description in your specific workflows. Then inside your task in the 'Work Item Text' use 'Insert Variables' and choose the same container you created.

Make sure the binding between your task container and workflow container is done properly.

you can edit the task description by going into the task -> description -> click the change button. here you can write simple if else condition to display the text dynamically according to your criteria. you can populate values dynamically by referring the container elements.

do not edit the task description again in the activity level which will ruin the coding.
