Use the Task Search page to search for tasks by user name or task ID. The search results are displayed on the Task List page, where you can access a task’s history. You can also reassign a task is one user has too many tasks or if a user has received a task assignment in error.
Performing task searches returns no results for user names that begin with a number sign (#). If possible, avoid creating user names that begin with a number sign.
The results of a task search are displayed on the Task List page. You can select a task to open the Task History page. From there, you can assign the task to another user.
The tasks are displayed with the following information:
