Redirect user after task approval

After the approval of a Nintex workflow task the user is by default redirected to the list or library where the task is referenced from. With a simply change you can modify the page the user is redirected to.

 Note: this trick only works on the sent mails and is not possible when the user goes directly to the workflow task.

  1. Open the Assign Flexi task.
  2. Click on the notification tab.
    Redirect Task

  3. Remove the here from the Click here to respond to the task message.
  4. In the top menu click on the tab Insert and select Link.

  5. Add the Approval URL from the Common Tab and append with &source=http://targeturl after it.
    Add a hyperlink text and OK.
