I seem to have encountered a problem with Tasks already ;-)
I've created a request data action called 'Approval Level 0' and then a second one later called 'Approval Level 1'. These both have quite similar custom columns
Approval Level 0 contains
- Approve or reject level 0
- Rejection reason code (L0)
- Comments at Level 0
Approval Level 1 contains
-Approve or reject level 1
-Rejection reason code (L1)
-Comments at Level 1
So the names are quite similar. The first task (Approval Level 0) is fine, but Approval Level 1 seems to have a rather messed up edit form as it is picking up the fields from Level 0! These are both seperate content types with entirely seperate columns.
If you view the Approval Level 1 task it looks fine with correct column names:
But if you go to EDIT the item you get this, with Level 0 fields :?
Task name is correct, but for some unknown reason its picking up the wrong columns even though they look fine on the display form.
I had a look at the code behind the task form for each, and it seems like these columns have been given the same internal name in sharepoint- in both forms the approve or reject column is called Approve_x0020_or_x0020_Reject_x0, the comments called Comments_x0020_at_x0020_Level_x0 - although I may be presuming wrong and its just not updated the Approval Level 1 edit form with the correct names.
Either way I've been banging my head against the wall for the last couple of days thinking I'd been doing something wrong but I've started again on a fresh site and straight away encountered the same problem. Have you come across this?
Can't think of a way around it, I have another 2 approval levels to add (2 and 3) and can't get past level 1 now because of this bizarre issue.
Any ideas here would be great as did rather like this software but now getting rather frustrated.
Hope to hear back from you soon.
