I'm trying to make a workflow (2013) in O365 that requires this flow:
- Create a task for UserA
- Email UserA to notify about the task, and CC UserB
- Wait for UserA to complete the task
Sounds simple, but I can't get past this. Here's what I've tried.
Amazingly, it looks like these builtin steps are not capable of using the CC field. PLEASE correct me if I'm wrong; this is my preferred solution.
Assign a taskor
Start a task process
As a workaround to this seeming glaring oversight in the workflow framework, I've tried manually re-creating the task functionality. But now I can't tell when the task is done.
Assign a task, don't
Wait for task completion, and do set
- I'm stuck here - how do I wait for the task outcome? (yes, I have the ID at least)
Can anyone explain how to wait for the task outcome, or give another approach that will meet the goal?
EDIT: Clarified that the purpose of the email (with CC) is to inform the user they have a task. Thus, it cannot happen after completion.
