Goal

This note describes how to share attachments and comments amongst all users in group vote assignment of a human workflow.

If you do not follow the solution provided below there is a possibility that you might end up with the following scenario.

When using group vote assignment and routing in a human workflow, The comments and attachments of the last member of the group to action the task will not be propagated to the main task i.e, it means that you will not be able to see the comments of the last member of the group to action the task, in the audit trail.

Reason for this behavior:

When using group vote assignment and routing, a parent task is created for the cumulative task and a sub-task is created for each assignee. When an assignee responds and includes a comment, the sub-task is updated with the comment (and in the audit trail for the "onSubTaskUpdated" message you see the task detail for the sub-task including the comments from the assignee who responded). However, when the last assignee responds, the sub-task is still updated with the last assignee's comments, but the message that is received from the TaskService is
"onTaskCompleted". Since all of the assignees have responded, the audit trail shows the task detail for the main task instead of for the sub-task so you don't see the comments that have been written to the last sub-task in the
audit trail.
