Ad-hoc-workflow selected user groups

Dear All,

We are using Ad hoc workflow. By default all users from AD are visible to select in aproval workflow. In our requirement we have different groups and want only few groups should be visible at selection time in user deropdown.

Any help would be much appriciated.

Hi Ashwini,

You need to modify the workflow markup. If for example you were using our "Simple Approval Workflow", you want to change:

{state:In Progress|approved=Approved|taskable=true}


{state:In Progress|approved=Approved|taskable=true}
    {approval:Review|assignable=true|group=group1, group2}

this will limit assigning the approval to users from those groups.
