Issue with Approval & Review workflow (both OOTB & SPD) 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?

    I am facing this in O365 environment.

  • I think the issue is stemming from the fact that you are confusing an AD group with a SharePoint group. The functionality to expand to every member in the group will only relate to SharePoint groups, not AD groups.
