  • A task is one action (activity) in the workflow. It is how data is collected from the user and associated with the workflow to advance into next stage.

  • Of course. You can use the tasks list just like the tasks in Outlook without any relation to workflows.
    The approval process is basically a collection of tasks with some logic and associated item and participants.

  • Can you have tasks without workflows ?

    Would you say an approval workflow is a number of specfic tasks ?
