I want to filter my Workflow 2013 Tasks list only to display the tasks assigned to the current user. Hence I went ahead and set a filter 'Assigned To' is equal to [Me] in the view.

However, I am not seeing the tasks that has a SP Group assigned and the SP group contains the current user.

What am I missing?


If you have a SharePoint task list where the task is assigned to a SharePoint group, you may notice that the My Task list does not show tasks even if you are a member of the group of which the task is assigned.

Fortunately, there is a simple fix. It does require SharePoint Designer though. Open SharePoint Designer and then open the My Tasks view of the task list in code view. Find the tag and within it add the following:

  <Membership Type="CurrentUserGroups">
    <FieldRef Name="AssignedTo"/>
    <FieldRef Name="AssignedTo"/>
    <Value Type="Integer">

Save the view then open it again in the browser. It should now show any tasks assigned directly to you as well as any tasks assigned to groups of which you are a member.

As per my knowledge out of the box doesn't not has this ability.

You need to programmatically query this. Since its 2013 I believe you can do this using JSLinks. Inside this you should have the validation like Assigned To for current item (that is being rendered) is current user. And if it is a group, you can use JavaScript Object Model to check if current user is part of that group.
