Assign task to ad-hoc group of users

Question asked by mangar on Feb 12, 2014

I have a requirement to assign a simple approve task to a group of users.  2 problems,

1. the group of users is completely ad-hoc, but is known before the workflow starts.
2. some of the group can see that there is a task, view the document, but cannot approve/complete task.

I am not using explorer or share, alfresco is simply a 3rd party back end CMS, so I can do anything I want. Also, all the users are in alfresco already. I use Activiti.

For #1, I thought that I could create a group, add the users to that group, assign the task to the new group, and when the workflow is over, just delete the group.  But is there a better way?

For #2, I thought that because I have complete control of the front end, I could just do #1, and in the UI, just don't display my "complete task" button. but again, is there a better way?

Any input is appreciated.
