    1. Open the configuration screen where you want to add the variable—for example, an e-mail template or eForm.
    2. On the Process Data pane, on the Global Data tab, drag your shared variable for the task link URL—for example, ${TaskLinkBaseUrl}.
    3. On the Process Data pane, on the System Data tab, drag the standard process data variable task ID, and place it immediately after the variable for your task link base URL.

      In the configuration screen, the result looks similar to this:

      ${TaskLinkBaseUrl}${TaskID}
