SP Designer - Update list item value error

October 11 12
Advertisement
Hi,
I'm making holiday requests with SP designer, and my workflow works well, however, when the manager validation task is created, I would like to add the holiday request's details (such as start date, end date, Employee ID, etc).
So I have a list called "Holiday request" and an associated task list where all the validation tasks are stored.
What I tried was to use the "Update list item" function to update the Employee ID value (in the validation task column I created) with the holiday request's Employee ID value. So what I did was this :
(I initially posted a picture but I cannot, apparently)
The list I work on is the associated task list. I chose the field "Employee ID" and set the value to "Current item : Employee ID".
In my lookup, I've set the associated content field and in the value : "Current Item:Title"
I have also tried to use the Current Item:ID (which would be the Holiday request's ID), but it didn't work either. I've been testing a lot and wanted to know if you guys had any suggestions ?
Thanks a lot.
Cheers

Below are steps need to performed to update custom fileds in task form
1. Create custom task content type using SharePoint 2013 workflow task.
2. Add your fields here (start date, end date, Employee ID etc).
3. Make sure this custom task content type is associated with workflow task list.
4. In the assign task activity change the Task content type to your custom task content type.
5.From the single task activity properties uncheck "Wait for Task completion".
The below screenshot i have updated Empid in task form with current list Item id. You can update them according to your requirement.
Hope this helps.
