I'm fairly new to SharePoint and am just starting out with workflows. At the moment I am trying to create a simple Purchase Order Approval workflow, which should just have these stages:
- User clicks on +new item in the list and is presented with the form
- User fills out all required details (description, supplier, currency, amount etc.) including the person that the PO should go to for approval through a people picker field
- On creation of the new item, the workflow begins by creating a task that is assigned to the person chosen in the people picker field when the new item was created
- Further workflow steps are as would be expected - Approve / Reject, confirmation email to the person who created the item etc.
Overall I am happy with this process, but the one stumbling block I have is that I can't seem to find a way to assign the task to the person chosen in the form. I'm sure this must be possible and I'm just missing something - any advice would be appreciated.
