"Wait for Field Change in Current Item" + "User or Group" which Allow multiple selections...

Hi!
In SharePoint Designer 2013 and a SharePoint 2010 workflow, how do I use the function "Wait for Field Change in Current Item" with a "Person or Group" field that Allow multiple selections?

What Im trying to accomplish is for the workflow to wait untill the "Person or Group" field changes and then send out an email.
It works fine if there is a single user in the "User or Group" field but not multiple users.

Hi @FredricF
What is your action "Wait for Field Change in Current Item" in details? Per my test, I create a workflow using "wait for field to contain value", it could work when I fill in multiple users, so I want to check if there is something wrong with your workflow. Could you please provide more detailed information?

Hi and thanks for the reply!

To clearify what im doing. I have created a column named UserField1 which is a Person & Group column that can contain multiple users.

In the workflow, I configure the Wait-function to look like this:
then wait for UserField1 to not contain Current item: UserField1


The Curren Item: UserField1, at the end, can be configured to use the data as:
- "string"
- "displaynamn, Semicolon Ddelimited"
- "email, Semicolon Delimited"
- "loginname, Semicolon Delimited"
- "user ID, Semicolon Delimited".


I have tried all of these but it does not work. In the workflow logg I see that it simply completes the "Wait" without me doing anything to change the value in UserField1.
"Waiting on UserField1"
"Waiting Complete on UserField1"

Hi @FredricF
Could you please provide some screenshot for this issue? Per my test, I create a simple workflow use the action wait for people to not contain Current item: people, then update item text column to "1", and set the workflow settings to "start workflow automatically when an item is changed", the workflow could run normally.

What typ is the "People"-field?
The workflow should only continue when the "People"-field is changes not any other field in the list item.


A People and groups field that is set single user works but not with multiple users.
