I created a task process and wanted to have it send the Task to a group of users in a SharePoint Group. It lets me select the group in the Select Users
dialog and no errors are found when I publish it.
We are using SharePoint Online 2013.
I have followed the instructions on this MSDN link to get the Send an Email
and Assign a Task
actions to work.
I am now trying to use the Start a Task Process
action so I can assign the task to multiple people in a SharePoint group. If the group I select has only 1 member, then it works, but if there is multiple members it doesn't work, I get this error.

The Start a Task Process
is wrapped in an App Step
, which is what I needed for the Assign a task
and Send an Email
actions. The issue happens with Serial and Parallel tasks.
