Assign Multiple Tasks from one Task by tweaking Approval Workflow RRS feed

  • Question

  • What Approval Workflow does is creates multiple approvals from a single task whereby the assignee has to approval or reject the task.

    Now, Is there a way assign Multiple Tasks from one Task by tweaking Approval Workflow?

    i.e. I want that a Project Team Leader, from one task, can assign it to multiple users. Is this possible with Approval workflow or something else?

  • Hi Saumil,

    We can assign the approval task to multiple users by default. And furthermore, we can also set it to assign tasks need to assign to multiple users one at a time or all at a time.

    If you have set to assign tasks all at a time, then approval workflow will create multiple tasks all at a time once workflow started and each user in workflow participants field will get one task assigned to him/her/a group.

    For the details about approval workflow, please see

    Let me know if I misunderstand you.

    Thanks & Regards,
