Site versus List Permissions Question

Question asked by alarson on May 2, 2016
Latest reply on May 3, 2016 by alarson

The minimum permissions for a user to run a workflow on a site is Contribute both on the list level and the site level. Does a user need both contribute on the site and list level to run a workflow on a list? Or can they have no rights at the list level but contribute at the list level and still run a workflow?


I am having trouble with general users coming to a list and submitting a new list item that then kicks off the workflow that is assigned to run when an item is created. But, once the workflow gets to sending emails to management to notify them of the submission in the list, the email doesn't send and gives me an error that access is denied. This is with all users in the company having contribute permissions on the site and list level.


I would love any help or input!
