'Start a task process' sends the task to the last person in the approval chain first RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I am using Sharepoint Online 2013 and SPD 2013.

    I have a 'start a task process' in my workflow, which extracts the participants from a people-group lookup column in a sharepoint list. I have the 'Return field as' Display Names, Semicolon Delimited. In the image below, the 2nd people-group column has 3 participants.

    For some reason, the action 'start a task process' would assign the serial task to the last person in the participation list. When I go ahead and approve the task, the workflow continues to run but fails to progress.

    I am at a total loss for what is going on. Has anyone run into similar problems?

    Best regards,
