If you assign a task and the assignee declines the assignment, the task doesn’t automatically
return to your task list; you need to either reclaim the task (return it to your own task list)
or reassign it.
To reclaim or reassign a declined task:
Open the declined task assignment (indicated in your Inbox by a task icon with
a red X).
The Manage Task group on the Task tab of the ribbon includes commands specific
to managing the declined task.
