I'm digging through my old workflows as I thought this is something I've done before....

In an SPD 2010 Workflow impersonation step, Add List Item Permissions, can't I feed it a semi-colon delimited list of user logins to assign permissions?

i've tried passing it

but none works.

Actually, this has been reported by many in the past, and there really hasn't ever been introduced a solution to my knowledge.

Multiple users can still be assigned by using the list form (where the people picker functionality is available), but not the initiation form.

  • I'm not so good with the words. :) so are you saying the only way to do a multi user select is from a form where you would pick them all and then fire things off? or what?

  • @Carp I think we are on the same page. This blog post shows what I mean - you can use the people picker (the window with the title "Select Users"), but you can't input multiple users with a separator such as ;.
