Thanks Arun for the quick response. Correct me if I'm wrong.

By navigation to Nintex Workflow 2010 > Task Delegation I hope only newly created tasks can be delegated.

Can you elaborate more how to do with NWAdmin operation to delegate the pending task?

Hi Sivakumar,

Find below NWAdmin to delegate the task

  1. 1.     Delegate all tasks from one user to another using “NWAdmin” operation.

This operation is used reassign all tasks from one user to another. It can be scoped to a single site, or the entire environment. Note that tasks can only be delegated to individual users, not groups.

Note that this operation uses the Nintex Workflow web service, and requires credentials to connect to the web service.

  1. NWAdmin.exe -o DelegateAllTasks –currentUser domain\username -newUser domain\username [-siteUrl urlToASharePoitnSite] [-comments comments] [-sendNotification] [ -username username] [-password password] [-domain domain]

Parameters

The domain\username of the user whose tasks will be reassigned.

-newUser

Sounds good.

But I'm playing with real world applications. So it is not recommended to go and run commands against server. It should be fixed solutions to be supported to all users and all scenarios. So NWAdmin won't be a solution to me at this point.

Hi Sivakumar

I'm not exactly sure what you mean with "Long term delegation" for existing tasks (existing tasks can be delegated, but this is a "forever delegation"... ).

I think you should be able to achieve this with the Nintex webservices (http://yourserver/_vti_bin/NintexWorkflow/Workflow.asmx) with the DelegateAllTasks Action.

According to the SDK this method expects the current and the delegation user, a comment, a boolean value for 'send notification' and the site url (which can be empty for globally).

You could add this to a list where the users can add the current and the delegation user and after an approval, all tasks will be delegated.

Regards,

Martin

Diego Galeano,

You can find it if you click your name >> Nintex Workflow 2013 >> Task Delegation. It is not through the gear icon .

Be aware the setting is not visible on sites where Nintex is not activated.

Re: How to do Long Term Delegation with Nintex Workflow for pending tasks

Hi Glenda

In 2007 workflows "Site administrators can set delegation settings for a user other than themselves" for a specific period through "Task Delegation", do you know if this option exists in 2013?

Thanks

Youssef
