Get Approval Workflow Reassign Task Outcome value in SharePoint Designer or InfoPath


  • When an Approval Workflow task is reassigned SharePoint marks the current task complete and creates a new task for the new user. "When a Task Completes" section in SharePoint Designer has default code looking for "Current Task:Outcome equals Approved" or "Current Task:Outcome equals Rejected".  I would like to set a custom column value to "Reassigned" in SharePoint Designer when users reassign tasks. This will allow users to browse the Task list and easily see what tasks were reassigned - rather than just looking for a value of Completed under the Status column. Is this possible?

  • Hi,

    Yes, it’s possible.

    My test:

    I created a column named Test in library and set this column value to “Reassigned” when approval workflow task is reassigned.

    How I set steps in approval workflow:
