Question

Microsoft Community,

I want to have a workflow which assigns a user to a specific SharePoint group (ideally with an approval process in there).

The idea is a user completes a form > an approval message fires off to an approver > on approval, the user is added to a SharePoint group.

Is this something we can do?

Thanks

Hi MikeWilliams93, 

There is no out of the box action to assign a user to a specific SharePoint group, you need to develop your own workflow actions to do that or get a third party workflow tool like Nintex Workflow. 

There is a custom free solution:
