How to change document access into read-only access when start the workflow

    Question

  • I would like to change the document into read-only access mode when the user start the approval workflow.

    Because if the requester changed the document content, then the approval has no meaning.

    I searched over internet, seems not possible.

    If anyone has good idea, it would be highly appreciated.

  • Hi Jackson,

    For your requirement, assuming you are using SharePoint 2010 platform workflow, before the step which contains"Start Approval Process" action, add an Impersonation Step and insert a ”Replace List Item Permissions“ to remove the permissions on the user that you don't want to have, like the below:

    More information about Impersonation Step, you can refer to:
