Can I change who is assigned to a task within a project using fusion?


Level 2

I would like to use the answers from a custom form to change the assignment of a task within a project.

  1. Created Workfront Search module to look for the task with the template ID I needed. I filled in the collection section with "assignments:ID".
  2. Created a Workfront Misc Action module with the following:

Record Type: Assignment

Assignment Action: SwapUsersOnTasks

ID: Assignment ID (grabbed from the search module I described above)

hardcoded in the userIDs for this test

It seems that this updates the "Assigned to: ID" in the project's task, but the "assignments" column remains unchanged.

Any thoughts on how to update the assignment column of the task?

@[Ryanna Becker] The way we do it is to use the Update Record module, for Record Type = Task not the Assingment record. We map the UserID to the Assigned to ID field (there are no other Assign* fields on the task to map to for this record tupe). As I understand it Assigned To, Assigned and Assignments are different entities. Assign To - allows one user, Assigned allows one user, but Assignments allows users, job roles or teams.

You may not need to make any change to your scenario - just update the view of your projects / tasks to include Assign To?

Hey Greg - in order to do this, you need the task ID for every task in the project, correct?

Do your tasks have Roles assigned? I use the assignUsertoRoleOnProjects action to assign Users to Tasks on a Project using Fusion.
