Set a people picker field when a Task is reassigned. RRS feed

  • Question

  • So I have a document library in which I added these fields: System Owner and Developer

    The workflow is:

    1. The requestor/creator of the item will chose a System Owner

    2. An Approval gets sent to the System Owner and he sets a Developer (which gets put into the Developer field in the form)

    3. Developer receives an approval


    4. Developer decides he wants to reassign the task to someone else, so he reassigns the task.

    My question is, how can I get the reassigned developer into the Developer field in the form library.
    I don't see anywhere in designer where I can edit the reassigning process.

  • UPDATE: This solution does not work.


    Okay nevermind I found a solution:

    I make an extra field in the approval/feedback task called field1 for now. Then I go under Task behaviors, under when a task completes.

    Under If current Task: Outcome equals: Complete, I write:

    If field1 equals "start"

    set Current Item: Developer to Current Task:Reassign Task To

    Then go to edit the approval/feedback form and put a rule that sets field1 to "start" when the reassigned button is clicked.

    I am not sure if this works yet though, I just thought of this, but I am trying it now, if you have any better ideas let me know :)
