When lanes are added to a process model, all nodes within the lane can be assigned to a group or to an individual. This behavior can be overridden such that node assignment take precedence over lane assignment. This can be accomplished by marking the check box that corresponds to "Override lane assignment for this node," which will allow you to select the assignees to whom the task will be assigned. This check box will be automatically marked on nodes that are not within a lane. Once this check box is marked, the procedure for assigning the task to an individual or group is the same as the one detailed above.
