How do I stop a SharePoint 2013 workflow task from sending a notification to the task assignee. When a task is created it, sends an automatic notification to the task assignee. Can we stop the notification?
I couldn't find any options in SharePoint Designer when assigning task to a user but there's a setting on the task list that can be changed.
If you go to task list settings -> Advanced settings, you should have "E-mail notification" setting. Check if your list has this part set to Yes, then change and test if that works for you.
Please follow the following steps.
GoTo SharePoint Designer
Open your Approval Process/Approval workflow
Click on Change the behavior of single task (Under Customization section)
- Find for "Email task notification to Workflow Context:Initiator" (You can delete these kind of Email Actions from all the stages i.e when task expires, deleted, completes etc..)
Delete this step
Save --> Check for Errors
Publish the workflow.
Above steps will help you out. Please try and let me know.
