Lazy Approval - Ability to somehow know WHO APPROVED IT!
The lazy approval is a nice thing to have, but how can I let users have this feature when there is no way of knowing WHO THE APPROVER WAS??? When the auditors look to see who approved access to a system, they do not want to see "Approved by SharePoint App"....they want to see an individual's name.
This idea is currently supported in Nintex Workflow Cloud. As our next generation workflow orchestration platform, we recommend customers to move to NWC. Learn more about NWC and the migration tool here.
yes. track who/what/when approved is a must for auditing. Thx!

In fact, I would be pleased if we could get all the content of the recipient and sender fields: the sender email address but as well the to, cc and bcc fields.
This is much needed feature
re: Storing name/Email address - my preference would be Display name. Thanks

I also agree that this is needed as it's important to know who approved for audit and tracking purposes. This is especially true when the task is assigned to a group collectively. It appears that there is some validation that the user responding to the e-mail belongs to the group, so not sure why this can't be leveraged to update the "Modified by" field.
To Rick De Marco's question, updating another field would be better than nothing, but that approach would require us to do extra steps when we provide the user the option between Lazy approval and flexi task form when they want to capture additional information. We would then either need to look at two separate fields or setup the flexi task form to update the "new field" with the user information. Seems it would be much more straight forward to update the "Modified by" field with the appropriate information and keep to standard with other processes and expectations.
It would help a lot to have this available.

Agreed! I don't understand why this is not a default item especially when you're approving requests for credit cards, travel, etc.
Hi, If we were able to store the name/email address of the user who responded via LazyApproval into a separate field on the task would that achieve your desired outcome? And if you could choose say between Display Name or Email address which would you choose? Cheers, Rick
