URL in task description

Hey experts,

I have built a workflow that sends a URL to the the approver of the Purchase requisition. The URL is to a custom WD Java application. So everything works fine until I put and & in the url. I need two parameter for iPhone users because the pie client is required so they can see the application. So the links in the task description are below

regular: for workitemid>

iPhone for workitemid>

this looks fine. But when I use extended notifications to send the email out to the users the iPhone link looks like this wi_id=

A Space gets inserted so the application does not get the workitem id and my application fails.

Does anyone know how to get a url to be shown up with an & with out the &<space> ?????

Please all the higher executives have iPhones so it affects those in power.

    You need to make a container of the variable type and then use that container itself after '=' sign of url link.
