I have a sharepoint approval workflow running on OOTB announcements list.
Although it sends the email to the respective approver promptly, the user is unable to open the announcement without being propmpted for the credentials. (User is already signed in to the intranet site)
The intranet site has been added to the intranet zone.
Is there a setting in outlook or IE that I need to tweek to get outlook to play nice with opening these announcments and approval tasks?
Important Update: The problem is two fold. Although it prompts for user credentials, it still does not let the user in after entering his/her credentials. (Note that the user is logged straight in whilst opening the intranet site from IE)
