I am creating a simple workflow in SharePoint designer that will email a selected user when a list is modified. I am applying the condition "if modified by" in Designer. This condition works fine and the email is sent when I select
a specific user myDomain\username. It does not work when I attempt to associate a SharePoint group with the "if modified by" filter.
In my example the list has only one SharePoint group associated with it, this is the only group with permissions for the list. The group contains multiple users.
The workflow is successful with the following scenario:
if modified by myDomain\user1 or
if modified by myDomain\user2
The workflow fails with the follwoing scenario:
if modified by mySharePointGroupName (which includes myDomain\user1 and myDomain\user2)
This would be an ungodly if statement with a large membership SharePoint group. This would also be a nightmare as people leave the organization and their account credentials are left in the large if statement in the workflow. Looking for the
modified condition when associated with a group seems like the logical way of doing this.
I also tried "myDomain\domain users" which accounts for all user in my domain, this failed as well.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
