SP2013 : Task list not visible to other users

I came across weird issue, I created a task list with the system account.
This list is not able to view by any other users.
Spent enough time on finding a cause. It was all due to IE, it was working fine with Chrome and other browsers.

To make it work with IE:
1.  Active x and JS permissions has to be enabled.
2. The site has to be in the trusted pool of you internet explorer. 
3. Disable any extra add-ons.

Hope this small piece of information will save time

Create a custom view on Workflow Task Status

I came across to the requirement to create a custom view based on workflow status.

Requirement was to show all the approved items.


I found a interesting stuff, Filter will not work if we use words like below image:


we would need use the number rather than the words (e.g. 2 instead of In Progress, 4 instead of Cancelled etc)

Following list might help for this kind of requirement:

Status
Value
Not Started
0
Failed on Start
1

In Progress
2

Error Occurred
3

Canceled
4

Completed

5
Failed on Start (retrying)

6
Error Occurred (retrying)
7

Canceled
15

Approved
16

Rejected

17

Hope this will save your time!
