Move a workflow by a different user submitting a task outcome

We have a special request that an assistant can reject a request on behalf of an approver but the assistant cannot approve the request which has to be done by the approver.


I found this article. But I can't seem to be able to follow what the author had done.

How to keep moving a workflow on clicking of a button in a list form other than submitting a task form. 


I don't see the new outcome field that was created for the new content type which is "Nintex Workflow Multi Outcome Task" in our case. Our workflow actually uses the "WorkflowOutcome" field instead.


I then updated the "Status" field to "Completed" and the "WorkflowOutcome" field to "Approved" on a form by the same user who is assigned to the task and different user (the assistant). Both did not work and the workflow did not move at all.


We are using Nintex Workflow 2013.


Did I miss anything?


Thank you.
