How To change  'Assigned To' column in Workflow Tasks?

Hello,

 

I am using Nintex Workflow 2013. Can I change 'Assigned To' column in Workflow Tasks ? Let's say from 'User 1' to 'User 2'. So 'User 2' can give approval for certain Task (Not all Task) which was originally intended for 'User 1' . Have read about Delegation but my requirement is can I do that  programmatically (C#) ? Assumed that I know the ID of the task and the username which I am going to delegate.

 

Thanks a lot

Hi,

You can use the Delegate link on your form to do this. Changing Assigned To directly does not work in most cases*. You also have to be the site owner to do this.

*(It depends on the type of action you have used i.e. Flexi Task, Request Approval or Assign to-do task.)

Hi,

I've read about Delegation, Based on that link , I understand that I can delegate a task from task owner from another user (Just a task). But my requirement is, Can I do that programmatically (C#)? Assumed that I know the ID of the task and the username which I am going to delegate.

Thanks again

This is more of a SP question rather than Nintex question. See this link for reference.

Hello, I don't know if this is gonna help.

Finally I found how to change 'Assigned To' column by using Delegate SDK, but there's another problem arised which I described in this link Nintex Delegate Error - This task is currently locked by another user

See the second link in the post. It talks about upgrading the version of the workflow which can release the lock on the item. You should search in the MSDN forums for this issue.

Re: How To change 'Assigned To' column in Workflow Tasks?

I managed to do it with the mentioned Nintex.Workflow.HumanApproval.Delegation.DelegateApprovalTask method and so far there weren't any problems with locked tasks.

I'm not sure if this really is more of an SP or a Nintex problem. I tried everything I found related to general SP tasks and nothing helped. As soon as I tried the method provided by Nintex it worked fine.

Thanks for the discussion though

Andi
