Issue with Approval & Review workflow (both OOTB & SPD) in O365 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    When I start an OOTB approval/review workflow and assign it to a mail enabled security group (created in Exchange Online), it creates a single task for the group and works fine. But, when I select the checkbox to create an individual task for each of the group members, the approval/ review workflow simply completes and no tasks get created. Even when I create a SPD approval / review process and set "ExpandGroups" to "true", I face the same issue. Any ideas what is going wrong?

  • Hi,

    According to your post, my understanding is that you had issue with Approval & Review workflow.

    Please make sure you create workflow correctly.

    The OOB approve workflow is as below:

    The Designer Workflow is as below:

    Then when you start the workflow, it will create several tasks at the same time.
