You can do these particular quests ONLY ONCE each, though you can join people posting the quest even if you have already completed the quest yourself. A few of these Special Assignments acts as gates in a quest line, opening up the next one in sequence. The others are either the final quest in the line or a standalone quest that unlocks the full fight with the new monster. This is what you are ultimately after, because completing these quests will unlock a somewhat equivalent Optional Quest that you fight this new monster in, and that quest is repeatable indefinitely for farming and glory!
NB: Special Assignments are not available in High Rank when you're with the Serious Handler during the Iceborne story progression.
