How to open custom page / SPList item edit page when user clicks on Tasks item link?

Issue/Requirement:

When the user clicks on any of the workflow tasks list item created by Nintex Content Type, it takes to the Nintex approval page for approving/rejecting.  I would like to open the actual SP list item for which the workflow task is created instead of the default Nintex WF task list item or to open a custom page with query string values

Solution:

Item name URL: Specifies where the user is direct to when they click on the list item name in the web part. 

  • Task display form: Directs to the view page of the task item. Please note: The default view form for ‘Request approval’, ‘Request review’ and “Assign a Flexi task’ has the same behaviour as the edit form.
  • Task edit form: Directs to the edit page of the task.
  • Item display URL: Directs to the item that the task is associated to.
  • Custom: Specify a custom page to direct to. The following place holders can be added to the query string:

{TaskListID}: The GUID of the task list.

{TaskID}: The ID of the task item in the task list.

{ListID}: The GUID of the list that the workflow associated to the task is running in.

{ItemID}: The ID of the item that the workflow associated to the task is running on.

Steps

  • Edit the Nintex My task webpart
  • Go to Item URL Settings and change the Item name URL to Custom and pass the URL you wish to navigate with the Query string
