Environment - Office 365 using Nintex form App and workflow App.
How can I Assign Task to the User Group based on the Value selected in the Form by the submitter? e.g let say I have a Choice Menu in the form with Group A, Group B, Group C options, form Submitter select Group B in the form and Submit, I want that form to go to Group B users for Approval.
Solved! Go to Solution.
You can assign the task to the Group by selecting the choice field for the Participant field.
You need to make sure that the Group with the same name exist in your Sharepoint Site.
For that You need to use this action "Start a task process" instead of using "Assign the task"..
Just follow these steps it may be somewat helpful for u..
If you don't understand the above the steps reply me i share the screenshots..
I have tried both scenarios with Assign a Task and Start a task process.
The result is the same: 1 task created in the Task list and an email sent to all members of the SharePoint Group.
Thanks Christophe, see the screenshots below, no matter what value I specify in the lookup in the third screenshot, It assign the task to me by default. not sure why, I'm using lookup option in the participants section, and I can't assign user Group Name after I select lookup options.
The differences I see is that I select my Group column in the Current item (not with lookup in another list) and I have defined a SharePoint Group with the same name in the Settings of my site.
My group column contains Group A, Group B, Group C
In my Site Settings, under Group, I have defined Group A, Group B, Group C. In my case Group A contains 2 members and in this case it works.
I tested out what I understood what you were doing, I was able to assign the task to the group like that, I created column with People User Group, and in the workflow added the GroupNames equal to the group I wanted to assign the task and it work when I select that group in the form, if I select other group it just show me the Task Suspend in history otherwise if I select that group name (DeveloperSite Members) it just say task assign to that group But again I need to figure out How can I achieve this with the lookup values.
Both Actions Are difference..
start a Task Action it will show the sharepoint group name but it not assign the task..
