Hi,

Does anyone know if it is possible to change the event type names in the Approval workflow in sharepoint 2010? I implemented the out of the box Approval workflow and wish to change the event type from 'workflow initiated' to read 'For Review'.

Regards.

Hi,
there is one possibility which I do not recommend, because it involves modifying an out-of-the-box ASPX file.
Open the file
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\TEMPLATE\LAYOUTS\WrkStat.aspx

and place the following code at line 233 (after the history view error placeholder)
(please adjust the path to your jQuery library)
				<script type="text/javascript" src="/_LAYOUTS/RainerJScripts/jquery-1.8.3.min.js" language="javascript"></script>
				<script type="text/javascript">
// <![CDATA[
					jQuery(document).ready(function(){
					jQuery("table[summary='Workflow History'] td:nth-child(3)").each(function() {
						if (jQuery(this).text() == 'Workflow Initiated') {
							jQuery(this).text('For review'); }
						});
					});
// ]]>
				</script>

Open in new window

As the page is used by ALL workflow histories, you might want to implement an additional check on the list id / workflow id.
