My Workflows are "Failing to start" when Forms are submitted by Anonymous users

Jump to solution

I have an anonymous form and anonymous users are able to submit, however, workflows are "failed to start (retrying)" for every form submitted by an anonymous user. 

How can I make sure workflows start regardless?

To start a workflow it is required some minimum permissions.

Anonymous users can submit a form which means they have contribute permissions. So this requirement is met. How can I make sure the workflow is started when they submit the form?

I have marked yours correct, however it wasn't the full answer. Of course you have to have a certain permission. But the answer is actually anonymous users cannot start workflows

So to work around this I had to create a site workflow that collected unprocessed items and then start the workflow on these items.

This works like a champ.
