Capture Workflow Approval History on SharePoint Items

So, why wouldn’t we provide all pertinent information needed (including related documents) to complete the requested review and approval, right there on the task form?

SPSATL 2017 – Tips and Tricks from the Nintex Trenches

This past weekend, I had the pleasure of presenting at the 9th annual SharePoint Saturday event in Atlanta. For those who aren’t familiar, SharePoint Saturday is a community‐focused event dedicated to educating and engaging members of the local SharePoint community. The event is unique in that it is “for the community, by the community” and is free for all who attend.
