Assign a task to the user's manager as listed in Active Directory.
- [Instructor] In the case for a request for an approval,…the person approving the request could be different…depending on who's creating the task.…So for example, if I'm on Dennis Kim and I request vacation…then I want my manager, Harry,…to be notified to approve that request.…In order to do that I need to assign a task…under the Yes branch.…And notice it creates another branch.…This one for Approved and Rejected.…
I'll go in and configure it.…In this case it's going to be within the Workflow Context.…And it's going to be the Manager Email Address.…I'll click Insert.…And the Task Title is going to be…the subject of the email that comes in.…And click Save.…Publish the workflow.…
Click OK.…Now I'm going to log in as Kim…and I'm going to submit a new vacation request.…And click Save.…Now I'm going to log in as Harry…and see if he's received the task.…So here in Harry's mailbox from the Projects site…I see Task Assigned - Request for Vacation.…
I'll click on it.…And click Approved.…Just like that.…Nintex extends the capability…
