Updating a Request List from an action on a Task

We are using Nintex on Prem.


We have a Nintex form, when we submit it it writes to a List.

The List fires off a Workflow that creates a Flexi Task and assigns it to a group.

We have added a button to the Flexi Task to allow us to assign the task (not an outcome of the flexi task) to an individual, which works, it sets the Assigned To column and automatically changes the status to In Progress.


1st thing I would like to do is change that status to “Assigned” instead of “In Progress”.  Can that be done?

2nd thing we'd like to do is, add another button to our Flexi Task, which is not an Outcome, labeled “In Progress”.  When this is clicked, I would like to update the Status column on the Task AND update a TaskStatus column the Request with a status of “In Progress”.


We haven’t been able to update a column on the original List, any suggestions on how to do that?
