I am very new to SharePoint and am setting up a vacation approval process with a calendar. The workflow works fine for me. But the users who need to be able to "Approve/Deny" the request get "access denied" when trying to either edit the item to change the status, or when using the custom workflow I made that updates the fields in a more user friendly way.

I given the users contribute access to the list and workflow. I have confirmed the issue by having a user request access. Upon granting access the user still could not edit the item.

Thank you!

  • Do they have contribute permissions on the task list as well? – Eric Alexander Mar 22 '13 at 16:20
  • Yes, I just rechecked all the permissions and they have contribute permissions on the task list. – Jake Mar 22 '13 at 16:32
  • What are the item level permissions set as in the Advanced Settings of the calendar list? – Eric Alexander Mar 22 '13 at 16:34
  • Edit access was set to "only their own." I changed it to "all items" but the same issue has occurred. – Jake Mar 22 '13 at 16:47
  • Another user was able to edit the item and "accept". How could it be localized? – Jake Mar 22 '13 at 17:10
