Is it possible to create in-line approval buttons for issue and/or task lists?

This seems like it would have been asked before, but I've had no luck with my searches. It would be handy to be able to have approval buttons as a column in task and/or issue lists, so approvers on tasks/issues could do their approvals directly from a report. Is such a thing possible?

Hi Matthew -

I accomplish this by creating a calculated field that points directly to the Approvals Tab and place the link in a report like this...

Here's the column valueexpression - valueexpression=IF({status}="REQ:A",IF(ISBLANK({YOUR CUSTOM CALCULATED FIELD NAME HERE}),"","Approve/Reject"))

Here's the calculation in the calculated field - CONCAT("https://YOUR INSTANCE HERE","/","project/view?ID=",ID,"&activeTab=tab-project-approvals")

Users love this in a project report because they can review everything in one place and still make the decision or comment if more information is needed.

We have asked about this as well and currently I don't believe this functionality exists. I tried searching the idea exchange and nothing came up - maybe you could add it back in there?

Thanks for the sample. It's not exactly what I was hoping for, but does seem to be an acceptable workaround until WF adds the feature.

I'll also be posting it in the Idea Exchange, just in case.
