Workflows Problem - Start task process participants RRS feed

  • Question

  • All

    I have a workflow which errors (cancelled) at this line (sometimes).

    Start a task process with Approvers (Task outcome to Variable: Outcome )

    If I am the user (site collection admin, local admin) which initiates the workflow it processes correctly. If another user does so it errors.

    In the approvers group I have 2 members.  If I nominate them specifically rather than as a group the problem goes away

    Start a task process with mike mahoney; User A (Task outcome to Variable: Outcome )

    This is a work around but is hard to maintain with complex workflows.  Any thought as to what is causing this problem?
