Workflow 2013 task list RRS feed

  • Question

  • In a workflow 2013 there is a workflow task list that I would like to ask the following questions about:

    1. When I want to access the task list, I do not know where to look for it? Thus can you tell me how to locate the task list?  My worklfow 2013 does have stage names.
    2. Sometimes when I am testing, I get email messages saying a task you been assigned to a particular person (which includes test accounts). How these email messages being generated? Thus would you show me what I need to look at find find what generates these email messages?

  • Hi Wendy,

    I assume you are using SharePoint workflow on 2013 platform based on Workflow Manager.

    Since 2013 workflow can only be designed in SharePoint Designer, then if we access workflow settings page in Designer, we can open associated task list and history list.

    After publishing feature is enabled, you will find a task list named Workflow Task which is the task list of 2013 workflow by default. You can access it via http://sitename/WorkflowTasks/AllItems.aspx .

    With Task action, workflow mechanism will send email notification to task participants, and another email notification will be sent along which you can customized it in workflow design. Here are the references for task action in workflow 2013:
