A lead assignee is a user with the Authoring Assignee, Review Assignee, or Standard Setting Assignee permission who has been chosen by the task manager to be a team leader for this particular task. The Assignee permission allows you to work in tasks and gives you access to the Own Tasks list where you can observe the progress of tasks you have been assigned. Lead assignees are assigned during task setup and are given extra functionality. For more information about the Tasks screen, read About the Tasks screen.
