  • Hi Jiniv Thakkar,

    I cannot reproduce this issue, the “Assign a Task” action can be found in SharePoint 2013 workflow in my SharePoint Designer.

    Please check which platform you are using. When we create workflow in SharePoint Designer 2013, we can choose 2013 platform and 2010 platform. The workflow 2013 platform has the “Assign a Task” action, but the 2010 platform doesn’t include this action.

    If you didn’t configure 2013 platform for SharePoint 2013 Designer, you need to configure 2013 platform for the SharePoint Designer 2013, then check if it works.

    Here is a link about how to configure workflow for SharePoint Server 2013, you can use as a reference:
