Sharepoint Assigned to notification RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I have a TaskList with about 20 columns and i am trying to achieve the following process using workflow:

    1. A user creates a task filling fields 1, 2, 3

    2. Department manager receives a notification that new task has been created and assigns the engineer

    3. Assigned Eng receives notification. 

    I seems to have problem with point 3. So far i tried 2 things: 

    A. Enabling email notification for "Assigned to:" (default column) which seems to work only if the "Assigned to:" filed is filled when the task is created, not when task is modified.

    B. I introduced new column called "Eng assigned" which is a check box with Yes/No values.  When the manager has to assign the Eng, he fills "Assigned to:" and ticks "Eng assigned" filed. Unfortunately this doesn't work either and workflow gets stuck on the  Wait step. This is my workflow: 

    I also tried without IF XXX but the result is the same... Can you please advise? 

    Thank you in advance!

  • Hello,

    I managed to resolve the problem by recreating the EngAssigned column as selection list instead of check box.
