it should work how you have it so this is really odd.
can you share the workflow status page with the tasks - do they say pending?
yeah it says pending, I approved for the task as the second user in the assign task
but for me it says ( approved ) and not started, it hangs in the assign task and never pass through the rest of workflow, and for the other users it says ( Pending )
We are having the exact same issue. We have an assign a task assigned to multiple people. We have tried this exactly as above and more recently we replaced the names with names assigned as variables both end the same. One or more mark the task list as "in progress" and one or more "not started" this locks the task. This locks the workflow and does not progress pass this task. We have run the power shell script which does unlock the tasks it does not stop this issue from happening. Does any one have any solutions to fix this issue?
