I have a workflow set up to send an email to a set group of people once an item in a list is created.
There are ~40 people in the distribution list. I want to use a distribution list so I don't have to manually add/remove individuals from the email in the event that someone leaves/joins the company.
Throughout testing I configured the workflow to only send the email to me to reduce noise. Now that we're trying to push out the list to the entire organization, we've began testing it with the distribution list we plan to use in production.
This morning I received the email (I was added to the email individually whereas the rest of the audience is a part of the distribution list), however no one on the distribution list received the email. Is there something I must configure to allow for emails to be sent to a distribution list, or is that not supported in SharePoint workflow?
I'm using SharePoint Online through Office 365, and it's a 2010 workflow.
Also worth noting - The distribution list turns into a strange string of characters after being added. See below:
