SharePoint Designer 2007 Workflow : Stopped

Hi Friends – This article is yet another issue that we faced in Workflow

Recently, we created SharePoint Designer 2007 workflow to send email to the requester and SharePoint group, “Admin”. When the requester created an item, the mail did not trigger and the workflow status was “Stopped”. When one of the person from “Admin” group navigated to the list and approved it, mail was triggered. We were breaking our heads for an hour by rolling back the changes as it was working initially. Finally we came to know that “Admin” group in email was the Problematic one.


When we create workflow to send email with SharePoint group as mail recipient, the workflow stops running.


  • Go to Site Actions->Site Settings->People and groups under Users and Permissions
  • Click on the SharePoint group(in our case, Admin) and go to Settings->Group Settings
  • Allow everyone to see the membership of the group by changing the group settings as shown below:
