Get Item Link for Use in Approval Workflow

  • 1.  Get Item Link for Use in Approval Workflow

    Posted May 07, 2021 10:44 AM
    Hello,

    We're using BC Cloud and I have an approval workflow for a Sales Order.  I want to include a link to the sales order in the email notification the gets sent out.  The item link in flow only has the Id or the Row Id.  This does not send a complete URL back to the item.  I wnat a complete URL back to the item so someone can click and go right to it for review. Any help appreciated!

    Thanks,

    David Duffy

    David,
    Steps:
    1. Login to your web client with your credentials. Navigate to Request to approve page and copy the URL.
    2. Navigate to workflows and edit Sales Order approvals.
    3. Click on assist edit of first response argument and select the last response. Enter the Link Target page as 31 and paste your URL at Custom Link. My example is for a PO.
    4. Enable your workflow

    Thank you for your response Steven.  We use Business Central in the cloud and have a different interface so unfortunately I'm not able to do what your suggesting.  But thanks again for taking the time to respond.  Much appreciated.
