Custom Delegation Form

Hi Team,

I have created custom delegation form. Updating workflow task list fields (AssignedTo, ApproverComments), using spservices. I am able to update those fields. But after delegation for new user, form fields are disabled and display message states  "* You are not authorized to approve this item.". Is there any solution please let me know.

Thanks,

Mohan

Re: Custom Delegation Form

changing AssignedTo task item field doesn't cause the task is delegated to new assignee!

so s/he's not authorized to respond

if you need to have control over task delegations you either need to call 'Delegate Workflow Task' workflow action or call 'DelegateTask' method of Workflow.asmx webservice.

Re: Custom Delegation Form

Thank you Marian,

1st solution:

https://help.nintex.com/en-US/nintex2013/help/#Workflow/RootCategory/Actions/Nintex.Workflow.Delegat...

In my scenario the solution will not work. Actually I am using "Request Approval" Task, here I have enabled delegation. Instead of SharePoint delegation form I have used my custom delegation form. 

2nd solution:

In my organization web services calls blocked.

Please let me know, is there any other way or what parameters need to updated using spservices call?

Re: Custom Delegation Form

go on with first approach.

let the custom form save a 'Deletage request' to a dedicated list. configure a workflow on the list that starts when item is created. let the workflow delegate task using workflow action

Re: Custom Delegation Form

you seem to try to delegate task by a TaskID. 

Delegate task requires ActionID parameter to identify the task.

you have to capture respective ActionID within the Request Approval action
