Assigning a Task from a Task Inbox
Viewing Task Assignments
When assigning a task, the users, groups, or roles you assign the task to must be granted the access and functional privileges required to work with the task type you are assigning. Otherwise, the task will not appear in the user's inbox, or the user may not be able to work with the task. For more information, see Configuring Task Access Permissions.
For information about assigning a task from the Task List Management page, see Assigning a Task from the Task List Management Page.
*To assign a task from the Data View tab in My Inbox or a task type inbox
