Can a Workflow task contain an option to "delegate" the task to another user?

Is it possible within a Windchill workflow task to have the option to "delegate" a task to another user? Currently the option available is "re-assign" the task. I realize that the entire workflow can be delegated to another user through calendar options, however, I would like the user to have the option to delegate their task while actually accessing their task. The reason we want "delegate" as an option within a task is that we do not want the task to return to the original user. Is this possible within Windchill 10.1?

Re: Can a Workflow task contain an option to "delegate" the task to another user?

The Customizer's Guide provides some example code for setting the object instance team based on Task completion. The example shown illustrates a "rework" task that is assigned to the user that completed an upstream task (they do this by assigning the completing user to a "rework" Role on the Team. I am looking at doing the same type of thing... probably easier for workflow only but could (in concept) be applied to something like a Change Task where the assigned roles are more visible.
