Delegating a Task from Your Inbox
You can delegate any task in My Inbox or in any of your task type inboxes to another user. For information about delegating a task from the Task List Management page, see Delegating a Task from One User to Another.
When delegating a task, the users you delegate the task to must be granted the access and functional privileges required to work with the task type you are delegating. 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.
