SharePoint Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for SharePoint enthusiasts. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I'm trying to view/edit a workflow in Sharepoint 2007, but keep getting denied access.

In Sharepoint Designer, I click open site, then I put in the URL of the site. Only a portion of the site loads, and more specifically, not the workflows I am looking for do. Additionally, I thought there should be an open workflow option on the file drop-down menu, which I do not see.

What permissions does my user need to have to see the file site?

Your user will need designer level permissions. I'm not sure how the groups are setup by default in SharePoint 2007 though.

I have full access under the Designer user group. Still the same result. –  mikebmassey Jun 19 '12 at 20:21
