You can use this wizard to recommend (nominate) a user for a task.

Using the request for nomination you can assign users to tasks which must then select a person from its organization to participate in a work group. The user who selects people for a work group is called the nominator. A person selected for a work group is a participant.

Once the tasks are complete and the work group has been specified, the system automatically creates a contact list. The list contains the participants of a work group.
