Nintex Workflow Delegation

I just found this little feature by accident and thought it would be helpful. If you are on a SharePoint site do the following:

 

  • In the upper right hand corner, click on your name
  • Click on 'Nintex Workflow 2010 Settings'
  • Click on 'Task Delegation'

 

This allows you to delegate any tasks assigned to you to someone else during a specific date range. This is useful if you are going to be on vacation, travel, etc. I didn't even realized this was there. I guess because I don't normally click on my name. This option also exists for sub sites.

Re: Nintex Workflow Delegation

Additionally a Site a collection administrator can delegate for another users.

Another way to delegate is by designing it on your workflow. There is an action named "Delegate..." so as to delegate a specific task.

Take a look at the Nintex Workflow Guide for details.

Re: Nintex Workflow Delegation

Yes, you can design it in your workflow....but there have been quite a few people who have approached me about delegating without changing the workflow and without terminating it.

Re: Nintex Workflow Delegation

Sorry but I am confused here. Does this have anything to do with delegating tasks?

Re: Nintex Workflow Delegation

No. LOL

I´m trying to do a formula which does not allow the user create a request on the next 3 business days..

[Due Date]=TODAY()+3+IF(OR(WEEKDAY(TODAY())=3,WEEKDAY(TODAY())=4,WEEKDAY(TODAY())=5),2,0)+IF(WEEKDAY(TODAY())=6,1,0)

It has workes, but not perfectlly... when I choose any from 18/03 it does not let me choose a date.

Re: Nintex Workflow Delegation

Be aware that workflow delegation should also be allowed in your Nintex Workflow Management settings in Central Administration ;-)

Re: Nintex Workflow Delegation

There are times when a regular user (not admin, site collection admin or owner) would like to make this change when being out. I just thought it was nice that it was available to them.

Re: Nintex Workflow Delegation

You should create a question. This is simply a discussion about delegation.
