The task ID is populated once the task is completed. Before this the task list items can be locked by the task engine for processing and a workflow accessing this task may fail. There has been therefore a strong reservation form our Engineering group to implement this capability even if technically feasible.If one wishes to delegate the task then the delegation should be used.
Should you have other use cases for accessing the task list before the task is completed then please let us know what they are. There may be an alternative way of meeting this need that will not introduce the possibility of workflow failure.

Is there a way to have a hyperlink on a list that says "Approve/Reject" for approvers to click on to view their task to approve/reject items?
I tried to start a workflow manually after a Flexi task was created on the original list. The workflow goes to the workflow history list, gets the Related Content field and compares to the current list item URL/ID and returns the matching Workflow History items ID, then I can pass that ID into a string for the approval URL on that matching workflow history item ID so approvers can click. Unfortunately, I cannot get the Workflow History related content field to match, even if I store itself as a string, "http://site/lists/dispform.aspx?ID=5, (no title)" is returned, but I cannot match that.Anonymous supported this idea ·
