One of the option which you can use is workflow email alert.
So whenever this type of task is closed ( you can have specific flag or category to isolate from other tasks) - you can update the resolution with all details and send this info including sr no as part of alert to that specific group ( ideally distribution list). This way they would be notified with this information.
Thanks Kedar, I have considered that option as a work-a-round already but was hoping it wasn't the only option. The downside is that the tasks that follow the initial task of creating the domain account are not fixed, they are created dynamically by invoke template questions that determine which queues of people would need to get a task for setup. So in doing a distribution group we'd need to be creating emails for people who have no need for the information. This is an unpopular way to do things here.
I may turn this into an 'idea' that service request task order should be able to pass information along with the workflow created.
In general workflow in an organization is not just isolated tasks being completed; information needs to be handed off, such as what was done in a prior step. In Remedyforce AR System I was able given more flexibility with push fields to get this information handed off in a custom workflow.
I dont think there is a clean way to do this. The closest thing I can think of this is: Workflow: Automatically append the incident description to the task description when a task is linked to an incident.
... and it would need to modified to be Task to Task rather than Incident to Task.
There would be a number of variations of what you and Kedar have discussed, but as you both pointed out none of them a perfect fit for what you are trying to do.
The idea of an idea is sounds like a good idea.
