In the participant configuration you can configure the task view appearances.

You can also add new groups or user to a role. 

You must have Full Control of a process application in order to see the settings shown in this article. Read more about Process permissions here.

Expand the Advanced settings for one of your roles.

 A list of options for the task view is shown, here is how they work:

Use the new task view

Default: ON

This setting enables the New Task View instead of the old one. 

Display right menu panel

Default: ON

If not selected the whole right panel is hidden, this could be useful for seldom users since it narrows everything done giving the focus on just the task itself.

Allow assign

Default: ON

If the checkbox Enable share button is checked you can choose to allow or deny users the option to reassign their current and future tasks for an instance to someone else. Reassigning tasks is a useful feature for those processes where performersshould be able to choose, for themselves, who should be part of the role instead.

NOTE: Users with Edit or Full Control rights on the process application will always have permission to assign if the share feature is enabled.
