  • Question

  • Hi,

    We are on SharePoint Online. We have created list workflows with SharePoint Designer 2013.

    Is it possible to allow user to do approval by replying (Approved / Rejected) to assign a task email?

  • Hi,

    When you are assigned an Approval task, you will receive an email task notification. If you open the email in Outlook client application, you can get to the item and the task form the task notification message with “Open this Task”.

    1. Receive a workflow email.

    2. In the file, click “Open this Task” to open the task form from the task notification.

    3. The task form for the Approval task will open. You can approve/reject this task directly.

    The “Open this Task” button on the Ribbon in the task notification message appears only when the message is opened in the full, installed version of Outlook, and not when it’s opened in the Outlook Web Access web application (in browser). It is not available in browser.

    If you open the email task notification in browser, you need to go to the  list/library where the item to be reviewed is stored, click the “In Progress” link associated with the item and workflow. Open the Workflow Status page, click the title of your task.

    For more information, see All about Approval workflows.

    Best Regards,
