Dynamics GP Workflow–Task Approval Page redirects to local server URL even if the used URL was published!!

 

Looks like the folk at Microsoft forgot to remove the local URL when redirecting from Task Approval page to the actual document behind “This workflow task applied to:”:

So if your workflow was published over the internet and you users tries to open a document, the system will redirect them to the local server and not to the website as shown below:

To workaround this, I had to use SharePoint Designer or any available scripting tool to change the redirection of the below hyperlink in (C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12\TEMPLATE\LAYOUTS\Dynamics.Workflow.TaskApprovalPage.aspx):

<a href=”<%=this.DocumentUrl%>” id=”A1″ target=”_blank”
     title=”<%=this.WindowLinkTitle%>”>
     <%=this.DocumentUrlText%></a>.

Into the below modified one:    

<a href=”Dynamics.Workflow.GP.PurchaseOrderViewer.aspx?org=1&workflow=f01d80eb-d355-460c-8cb6-b2a2162a078b&PoNumber=<%=this.DocumentUrlText%>” id=”A1″ target=”_blank”
     title=”<%=this.WindowLinkTitle%>”>
     <%=this.DocumentUrlText%></a>.

And it worked Smile Hope that this helps.
