When using the K2 Worklist Web Part in SharePoint 2013 and setting the user's Out of Office; when searching for a user, you are unable to choose a default security label other than the "K2" label.


You may see the following:


The required functionality works correctly in the K2 Management site:
- Workflow: Providing users process rights
- Out of Office (OOF): Configuring OOF for the users.


This is a known issue, however it is expected in the K2 Product at this time.

A feature request has been created to enable this functionality within the product, please view it here:

We advise you to make use of the K2 Worklist control via K2 SmartForms.
