Deleting Tasks

Jump to solution

I have a list workflow that creates multiple review tasks in SharePoint 2013 list.  My question is if one of those tasks is deleted, will the workflow still complete when the remaining tasks have been completed?

It would be deleted by the Site Collection Administrator....user is getting an error when trying to approve the task.  "The Task is currently locked by a running workflow and cannot be edited".  We need to do research on why that is happening, but for an immediate solution, can the task be deleted?

can you replicate on a test item and check?  wouldn't be something I can try on my environment as I can't force that message "The Task is currently locked by a running workflow and cannot be edited"

If the user is getting an error, try delegating the task to the same user and see if he/she gets a new task and if it errors again.

Powershell did the trick.
