Using a person or group field to set permissions

Jump to solution

Hi,

I'm trying to use a person or group field that allows multiple values with a workflow to set a document's permissions based on the names in the person or group field. How do I get a set item permissions action to recognise the names in the field?

Thanks,

Rob

Field set up

Set permissions action

Thanks Philip for the reply.

Unfortunately you missed the point that my field allows multiple values, not one person only as in your example. If you have multiple values set, it doesn't work.
