# What permissions do I need to open site & workflows in SharePoint Designer 2007

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?

• Did you try with Full Control permission on the site? Did you check the SharePoint Designer general setting on the web application from the Site Admin Console? – Emiliano Poggi Nov 3 '15 at 18:49
