🔔 make all comments from apporver and comments from rejecter show up in SharePoint

Hello,

 

How do I make all comments from the approver and comments from the rejecter show up in my Comment field in my SharePoint list.

 

When I tried using the "responses comments" it put me in a for loop and then I only get approval2.jpg comments and never rejection comments. What I want is both of course to be shown.

 

Thanks

Hi,

 

Can you please initiate and append the variable as VarApproverComments.

 

While updating the SharePoint list, add the appended string VarApproverComments instead of 'Response Comments'.

 

This will help you display all the comments whether approved or rejected. And it doesnt throw inside a loop as we already initialised it as variable.

I followed this and it worked! Make sure to expand the comments in the SharePoint field only then you will see the rejection comments too.

Hello ,

 

Ok, I did that and it did work! However, is there a way to put the email name of the people that rejected and/or approved next to their comments?

 

Specifically, I would like to show just the name of the person who rejected the approval submission in an email. So, if there were 3 people are the third was the only person to reject, I would only want to see his name in an email.

I followed this and it worked! Make sure to expand the comments in the SharePoint field only then you will see the rejection comments too.
