Task List: Assign a certain result list per task, per workflow, for workflow controllers.
Result lists are useful. Having multiple result lists is a necessary feature which exists for good reason. However, all users of all task lists have the same result list configuration. Whichever result list is picked as "Default" is used for every task list system-wide.
Example: Accounting users (especially workflow controllers) should be able to have different options available compared to approvers.
This also goes for the "edit index entries" dialog of the result list. Even if an approver has (and needs) permissions to edit certain fields for workflow tasks, we do not want to present this as an option when they click "edit index entries" from the task list or viewer.
Therefore, the result list marked as default must be very restrictive.
Therefore, the accounting team also is restricted.
Therefore, they must search for the document and use a more permissive result list to access the functions they need.
The option of which result list to use for a task should be configurable on a per-task basis. This can be made to only affect the context menu options and the edit index entries dialog. Configuring the columns to show can be left as per-workflow.
Alternative: Standard and Controller task lists ... per workflow.
Allow each workflow to have its own default task list.
Allow each workflow to have a separate result list for workflow controllers. (The controller result list should apply to controllers whether they're in My Tasks or Monitor Tasks.)
Thank you for your idea. We added it to our collection of ideas and features and will further investigate it. We currently cannot say exactly when this idea will be implemented. As soon as we have more information we will update its status.
It would be great to specify different result-lists to a workflow.
This article says that a workflow uses the standard lists but I want to specify it because I want to reduce the dialog fields which are displayed if I want to change them. It is not needed to see all.
