Go to your Company Settings and scroll down to the Custom Workflows area. Look to the right under the task settings and you'll notice a dropdown that says Auto-Assign To.

For each task in a workflow, you can choose to automatically assign it to a particular Assignment Role. For this example I will auto-assign the "Report Uploaded" task to the "Review Lead".

Anow Pro Tip: Users subscribed to Anow Accelerate will be able to assign Custom Roles to workflow tasks. Click here to learn more.

I also auto-assigned the task "Set File to Complete" to the "Trainee" Assignment Role:


Click "Save Changes" to update the Workflow Task settings.

Now when I go to an order where I have an assigned Trainee and Review Lead, and the Workflow is set to the one we just edited, the tasks will be assigned to the proper users.

  • "Report Uploaded" task is assigned to the Review Lead, Johnny Smith.
  • "Set File to Complete" task is assigned to the Trainee, Martin Jones
  • All other tasks that don't have an auto-assignment set up will go to the Primary Appraiser on the order, Brenda Black.

A few important things to note:

  • The Primary appraiser on an order will be assigned to all tasks without an Assignment Role set.
  • If you re-assign users or remove assigned users, the Workflow area on the details page will update accordingly with the correct task assignees.
