When attaching the workflow to a list, how do you customize the task list name? I did it before but can't for the life of me remember how to do it anymore.enter image description here

The drop down shows all available tasks lists. If your site only has a Workflow Tasks, then that is what shows up. You'd just need to create a new task list with your desired name, and it should be available in that drop down.

*Answer update: You can just select new task list and after it's created, you can change the task list name.

  • hmm... I just tried it and it didn't show up. Do I need to set the task list to some specific setting? Feb 12, 2015 at 20:44
  • Is there an option for a new task list in the drop down? Admittedly, I didn't try this in 2013, this is just the way it worked in 2007 and 2010. Feb 12, 2015 at 20:56
  • i did, but it didn't show up in the drop down for some strange reason. But, you can just as easily select a new task list and then rename that list after it's created. Thanks a bundle! Feb 12, 2015 at 21:00
