No access to this page, when trying a approve a task

Jump to solution

I have created a workflow and the group of approvers has "Contribute" permissions on the whole site.

Despite this, the approver can not approve the task.

After clicking on "Approve" on the task form, the error message is : "Sorry, you don't have access to this page", and the task is not approved.

Thank you for your help.

The approver group has "Contribute" permissions on the workflow task list, as well as on the whole site.

is the whole approver group affected?  and the user affected definitely is a member of the approver group?  is the approver group a SharePoint group?

Yes the whole group is affected. It is a SP group. The only way I have found to bypass this pb is to give a higher permission to this group, such as "Conception" (in french, I don't know if it is the same word in English"). But I don't really want to give such rights to approvers, of course. I had to give this rights on the main list, not on the task list.

"Contribute" on everything, including the main list, that the workflow is on.

that is totally bizarre.  does it change if you select "assign individual tasks" in the flexi task?

I have a new information that may help you to understand : if the approver is the creator of the request, ha can approve. I he is not, he can't.
