Populate task id as soon as the task is created
All task actions can populate a task id variable but usually populate the variable only after the task is completed by the assigned user. I would like to recommend that this behavior be changed so that the task id variable is populated when the task item is created and assigned. This way I can query the task item even before it's task action is completed.
Please see my post on the forums https://community.nintex.com/thread/1451
The task ID is populated once the task is completed. Before this the task list items can be locked by the task engine for processing and a workflow accessing this task may fail. There has been therefore a strong reservation form our Engineering group to implement this capability even if technically feasible.If one wishes to delegate the task then the delegation should be used.
Should you have other use cases for accessing the task list before the task is completed then please let us know what they are. There may be an alternative way of meeting this need that will not introduce the possibility of workflow failure.
This is really a bug, request data does it
