Adding Tasks (renamed Action Items) to the Reminders web part in PWA Home RRS feed

  • Question

  • The PWA Home page has a Reminders web part that displays various elements including Tasks, timesheets, status reports, issues and risks, etc.

    I would like to add Action Items (renamed from Workflow Tasks) to this area and have it tied to the logged in user like the other elements.

    Any idea the best way to do this?

  • Hi Brian,

    The out of the box reminders web part doesn't provide an option for showing up a number for workflow Task assigned to current logged in user. You may need to create a new webpart that gets the item count from Workflow Task using the SharePoint obejct model for current logged in user. This will require a custom development.

    Another limited workaround may be you can show the link on the PWA homepage that redirects the user to the (http://servername/PWA/WorkflowTasks/MyItems.aspx).
