we have a document approval workflow
we choose mulitple people from a picker
the data gets stored in SQL with the ; separator
how can we assign a task to both people?
Assigning the task to two people separated by semi-colons should work. Perhaps what you want is for both people to take action on the task? In that case, you need to look at the Task Result tab to control how many recipients must respond. The default is "First Response".
When configuring the recipient in the workflow task, you will need to use the option of "Type/Construct my own" and then map the value from the picker control that contains the semi-colon separated list of users.
