About AssignmentsLast Updated: 04/30/2018 Introduced in Version:
Assignments in Decisions set who is responsible for a task and what the task involves. Assignments create notifications (for example, a portal notification or an email) to alert the assignee(s) they have an assignment pending. You can assign tasks to Users or Groups. You can also assign tasks to Assignment Roles, which are Users or Groups classified according to their role in a process (for more information, see Creating and Using Assignment Roles).
Every Assignment in Decisions is connected to a Form. The most common way Assignments are created is with the Add Task Step in a Flow (for more information, see Creating a Task From a Flow). Tasks are synonymous with Assignments in Decisions. A related feature is the To Do portal action (for more information see Creating a Simple To Do Assignment).
