How to approve sharepoint workflow directly from email

    Question

  • Hi,

    Created sharepoint designer approval workflow. In email task notification body provided Approve and Reject options.

    For "Approve" text provided [%Task:URL%] link. When i click on Approve link in the mail it's redirecting to task item and there i have to approve.

    But i want to reduce extra action, directly from mail i want to approve that task or reject the task.

    Please help me, how to provide the link in mail


    Thanking You, Nagendra.

  • Hi Negendra,

    From your description, you want to approve that task or reject the task directly from mail.

    You can use "open this task" action in the email:
