I have "Start Custom Task Process Action" and in task form fields I have a people picker. After task completed, I want to get selected user from people picker and use this value to send mail to this person.

How to achieve this? Thanks.

In the When Task Completes step, you can add a Send an Email action.

Click these users.

In the To field, click the address book and select Workflow Lookup for a User

Data source: Current Task

Field from source: your task form field

  • Laurie, is it possible to save this value from people picker, to use it when creating new custom task process (in "with these users", and "these users" is a value from previous task from people picker)? Jul 23, 2011 at 6:58
  • You could use a column in your list to hold this value and you could use the Association column in the ribbon to set one up if you don't already have a column. Inside the task process you have access to the list item that the workflow is running on. So, you can assign a value from your task into a field in your list item. And you can assign a value from a field in your list item to your task while inside of your task process.
