How do I find the tasks for a particular list item?

Jump to solution

New to SharePoint and Nintex.  Using SharePoint 2016 On Prem and Nintex 2016.

I've a workflow that assigns a number of to-do tasks.  Now I want to run a separate site workflow that checks those tasks and, when completed, updates the corresponding list item and sends an email notification to say process is complete.

If I query the list items, is there a way to find all tasks associated with a particular list item?  I know that ID will give me the unique id of each task but what property identifies the tasks that relate to that item?

Hi,

This could be done as part of the original workflow if required? The workflow will not progress without the task being completed. If you are issuing a number of different tasks simultaneously then you could issue them in parallel actions and then wait till they all complete. If you're issuing these in a serial manner then surely just wait till the last task is completed before performing the update?

Or is there any reason why a single task cannot be assigned to multiple users and wait till all users respond before progressing the workflow.

Is there a specific reason you need a separate workflow to evaluate these tasks as complete?

Nope, no reason to separate if not needed.  I thought that the workflow blocked, waiting for tasks to be complete, before proceeding but when I tested, it didn't seem to happen that way.  I'll test again and see if it might just be the way I have the workflow organized.

Thanks for the reply
