I have a vacation approval workflow in SharePoint 2010 with the updates the following items:
a. Vacation Approval Form Library
b. Vacation Calendar.
An employee creates and submits a Vacation form; his manager approves it. Upon approval, his vacation schedule is posted on the Vacation Calendar.
But this works only if the employee (aka the workflow initiator) has contribute level permission to the calendar.
I don't want the employee to add or delete items to the vacation calendar. Only his manager, or the Nintex workflow should have permssion to modify enties in the calendar. When I set the Calendar permission of the employee to Read, this workflow fails.
It appears that the problem is that the workflow inherits the permission of the initiator (the employee). Can I set it up to inherit the permission of the manager or approver?
I played with Set Item Permission. This may allow me to delete a calendar entry that already exist. But -- how to can you grant permssion to employees to create something that does not exist yet.
Assigg Flexi task also has a Item Permission property. What items are we setting permission to?
Thanks in advance.
