How can I assign a task to the manager of the person listed in the "person or group" field type.
If you are using O365 read this >>> How to get Manager in O365 Workflow?
Sorry! Should have identified which version - We're using Nintex 2010 and SharePoint 2010.
you could use query user profile action of the person/group field and pull back the manager into a variable - assign your task to that variable. does that make sense?
Thanks for the quick response!
I'm very new to Nintex. I'll give your suggestion a try.

OK so in your list you have a column of type person/group right? In my demo I have one column called "Employee" of type person/group. In my workflow I want to assign a task to the person in the Employee field's manager. Here is what I would do:
1. Create variable to hold manager in:
2. Query user profile action (located under Integration category of actions). Choose address book next to User and select the "+" on Lookup section and select "Employee" under Item Properties.
3. Assign flexi task to manager in variable - use address book and select the "+" on Lookup section and select "vPersEmployeeManager" under Workflow Variables:
Hi Cassy! Thanks for detailed information it's very helpful!
I'm not seeing the Query User Profile Action under the integration category. I've also tried using the Search bar, but still no go.
Is there a feature not turned on? What information can I pass along to our IT team to enable this?
Please speak to your support team, they may not have "allowed" this action to you as a designer.
Hi Melodie Hecht Are you on Nintex standard or Enterprise. This action is available in Enterprise only.
You can use Query LDAP
