Assigning Task to Multiple Approvers
Allowing a task to be sent out to multiple users/ approvers would be helpful in some situations. I have tried many workarounds with fiddling with variables and keep getting an "invalid email format" error. The only workaround I have found is creating email distribution groups within my org, which is a very messy workaround.
This functionality is now available to Nintex Workflow Cloud customers via the Assign A Task To Multiple Users action.

Thanks for releasing this feature. Any proposed dates for "Supporting directory groups and Nintex Workflow Cloud groups"?

Actual State after some years?

Any updates on this functionality? This is a basic ask from clients and would really appreciate it if we know the expected date of release, please.
should mimic the functionality in O365

It is now Q4 2020. Any news on this very much desired functionality? Appreciate an update with maybe a real date I can give to my users.
@kate , do we know when this feature will be released, we see Q3 on the roadmap but was wondering of that is still the case?
I mostly agree with what Chris says, I believe in essence this should mimic the functionality of Nintex for O365 where you can pass the action a semicolon delimited list of assignees and set parallel/serial approvals, % response on a particular outcome etc.
Is there a confirmed launch date for this feature yet? It seems like after more than year this should be ready to go?
Our organization really needs this badly so we don't have to manage a growing number of google groups. For our processes groups could be as large as 10 people but I could see that growing in some cases, particularly if we move another one of our processes to Nintex.
Our processes assign a single task to a group of users and any person in the group can approved and complete the task. I would be hesitant to put a max number of supported email addresses.
I would like to see the assignee continue as email addresses, but support multiple. This is a much more flexible approach.
This would be awesome for Managers who have an Exec Assistant who assist with their approvals.
For our company, I would like this feature to allow the same task to be sent to a primary recipient, but allow for an additional person (or more than one) to be listed as an alternate that can close out the task as a proxy for the original owner. I don't want to delay the process by using escalation.
This would be highly needed, from our organization point of view we can run anywhere between 1-10 people as assignees to tasks that we need either multiple tasks created for each user or one big task. Then some we have set as all have to Approve, First response, and the majority answered.
