These are just task lists. Each workflow can log its user tasks to a different task list. Selecting "Tasks (new)" will create a new task list named "yourWorkflowName Tasks". The default task list for workflows is "Workflow Tasks".

What I understand is you want to rearrange your tasks in the Task List priority wise. So I am giving answer on my assumption. According to my assumption you did not need to create Task list dynamically. Let me know if my assumption is correct or wrong without being rude !! So for this you can create an Event Receiver which can fire when any new item has ...

Assuming your workflow is an out-of-the-box Approval workflow or a workflow that has been created using the 2010 platform (containing the "Start Approval Process" action), then you need to use the Workflow Item ID field (internal name is WorkflowItemId). If your tasks are created by a workflow using the 2013 platform containing the "Assign a task" or the "...

Looks to be Project Server related error (not just SharePoint). I ended up removing the 'Set the current project stage status' event and the workflow runs perfectly.

As you've discovered, there is a timer job that runs which deletes "workflow instances and related task entries that still exist 60 days after a workflow is completed or cancelled." This quote is from Microsoft's doc that explains how to disable that timer job, if desired. (of course, these steps would only apply if you're using SharePoint on-prem. You can't ...

As per my understanding, Your task is created of "Task" content type. You will need to add "Workflow Task(2013)" content type in your task list and then create task of "Workflow Task(2013)" content type. So it will automatically give you Approve- Reject buttons. Please refer this link.

If you want a concrete answer as to whether items without the GUID will be deleted or not you either need to test it youself, or ask Microsoft directly. I don't think the community can give you the required authority on the answer unless someone has conclusive test data of having done the same thing. Why not just modify your workflow so it creates a copy of ...

A task list would do just fine for your needs. There are even ways to customize these taskers that have been shown in this group. Just make sure that everyone who can edit their own record has the same level of permissions.

Reference Here The “Approver Comments” column only will be shown in the list when you set “Require content approval for submitted items” to “Yes” in the list, and we need to click “Approve/Reject” in the ribbon to add the comments. In SharePoint 2013 workflow, there is no “comments” in the task form, so if you want to let users be able to add comments ...

You are missing the "__metadata" property from the "AssignedToId" object: Try this out: data: JSON.stringify({ __metadata: { "type": "SP.Data.TasksListItem" }, Title: "Sample Task", AssignedToId: { "__metadata": { "type": "Collection(Edm.Int32)"},'results': [11,22] }, DueDate: due, Status: "In Progress" })

Yes, you can very well use the task list in sharepoint to track the progress of individual's tasks. You can create different views by adding dynamic filters like Me, so that users can track the progress of their own tasks(created by user or assigned to user).

There are two ways you can change a task (Approve, Reject, Reassign) which is not assigned to you: Have site collection admin permissions Specify ownership of a task process in SharePoint designer I will specify a way to do this with SharePoint designer. First, create a SharePoint group on your site, or use an existing group. In SharePoint designer, ...

Well did you ever solve this Dinerdo? The answer I am presuming is NO - you cannot fool the task. This is because the Task is associated to the WF Instance ID, which has the date/time fields etc. Changing anything on the task does not get it to "fool" the timer job cleanup. You cannot fix the timer job cleanup or fool it. It will cleanup what it wants ...

Go to Library Settings > Advanced Settings > Content Types "Allow Management of content types." -> Yes A new section will appear in the library settings. Select your document/item/object of interest. In this case I'll edit a Document. You should see two columns that relate ...

I don't believe SharePoint and OneNote share this particular feature like SharePoint does with Outlook. OneNote is simply for taking notes, if you want users to interact with the tasks I would add a link to the task list in OneNote. The only idea I have is that you could export a view from your task list into Excel, save it in SharePoint and then use the ...

I'm using SharePoint Online. It allows me to add a retention policy for the workflow task. The navigation path is: List settings > Information management policy settings > Content type policies Hope this helps.

Please make sure that following features are not deactivated by mistake: Site collection features > SharePoint Server Publishing Infrastructure Manage Site Collection features > Publishing Approval workflow feature

SharePoint has a retention policy set in place that will delete items that are complete after 60days which I believe also includes the task list. So when the Workflow Auto Cleanup Job is triggered it will remove any task list item involved. Its the workflow history list that will stay forever unless you delete it and its this list that holds the primary ...

I'm assuming you're doing the approvals through a task list? If so, you could just run the approval process through the existing list by creating an approval choice field (approved/denied) and creating a custom workflow in SP Designer to look at the approval field and act accordingly. This would allow the end user to approve the item on the submission form....
