Hi Cherise, could you post some screenshots?
In the state properties window, click Add users/groups, select the one you want, click OK.
When it appears in the list, click on it again then tick the appropriate permissions and click OK to exit the dialog. Then make sure you click Save to save the workflow.
Let me know if this helps.
I have an idea -
I have noticed behavior like this when the workflow window is open, and above it I open the Group windows and set permissions from there. Apparently these permissions are gone when saving the workflow.
So my suggestion is - never work simultaniously on a Workflow and a Group windows.
Hope this helps
I kept trying and eventually got it to work by resetting the program and going directly to my groups. Now that I see your post I recognize trying to work on both at once was my problem.
Thanks for your help.
