How to submit Flexi Task Form without Approve/Reject ?

Hi, I've customised the Task Form of 'Assign Flexi Task' with Nintex Forms and added few custom fields. These custom fields are connected to SharePoint list so that when I submit, these fields are inserted into the list. I've two buttons in the form. Button#1  has to just save the form data into the list. Button#2 will submit the data as well as 'Approve' the task (with out selecting Approve/Reject task outcomes or Decision Radio Buttons. Infact I've removed the Radio Buttons & handling the 'Approve' task with Button#2).


I'm able to do the Button#2 functionality. I got stuck with Button#1 where it just has to insert the data. I could do this with REST API which I want to avoid. With Save & Submit button for Button#1, if I submit the Task Form, the data is getting inserted into the list but the workflow is throwing an error. I guess the Task Form when submitted is expecting an input which should be either Approve/Reject or any other Task Outcome.


Is there a possibility where I can make the Task Outcome (Approve/Reject) optional so that I can submit the Form without any error. And with Button#2 I can Approve/Reject the Task anytime I want and the Workflow moves forward.


Hope I'm clear on my requirement. Is there a better option with Nintex where I can achieve this. And I'm using SharePoint 2010.
