Assigning tasks to users or groups

WF tasks can be assigned to users or user groups.

The easiest way to assign a task to a group of users is by calling a pg/plsql function when a particular task is fired but hasn't been assigned yet:

Handle unsassigned tasks  

Other available pg/plsql routines for task assignments include:

  • Package: intranet-timesheet2-workflow :: im_workflow__assign_to_supervisor (with no custom argument)
    Assigns a task to the owners supervisor as managed in portlet "Employee Information" 
  • Package: intranet-workflow :: im_workflow__assign_to_user (user_id)
    Assigns a task to a particular user
  • im_workflow__assign_to_project_manager
    create function im_workflow__assign_to_project_manager(int4,text) returns int4 as '
