The much awaited Nintex Lazy Approval action for Office 365 SharePoint online is here making your approval process SUPER FAST! All we have to do now is to simply type 'Ok' or a few other accepted keywords (covers almost all words I could think of for saying yes or no) in the assigned task notification and hit SEND. Right from your inbox without going to your SharePoint environment.
Here's something I tried and sharing for you to try in your cloud as well(weather permitting ofcourse - just kidding!)
Your organization has purchased a few training resource licenses and your rock-star team of devs/engineers/architects/students/runners/movers/shakers...well you get the idea, want a process in place that will track requests allowing users to avail training for two weeks and then release the hold, so others can book the same.
Create a list, setup a workflow, assign a task when resource is requested. Pause the process for two weeks, then continue the process by assign a task for returning the item. On return, release the hold for the resource.

Customize with Nintex Forms to show the fields as shown below. (I set Requester name to current user and StartDate as Today on form load)
Now we are ready to assign requested resources to users via lazy approval process. Image below shows workflow steps.
Thats it! You are done. And here is the quick snapshot of all steps at a glance.
Lazy Approval really makes approval process and task completion faster for users.
This is just an(my) example and one way of solving a request/task assignment scenario with Lazy Approval enabled. As we all know, there are multiple solutions for any task/requirement. Choose what best fits your needs and have fun working smart!
