I'm a journalist who recently reported on this patent from GROW software - patent number: 20170157859. Could I have confirmation that it has been granted? I originally reported it as such and was sent an email to say an application had only been published.

This patent has not been granted.

See here for the dossier of the USPTO.

A source for the confusion might be US9604406 (B2) which is a granted patent coming from application US2014156053 (A1). The patent you named is a continuation of this (now granted) application (US2014156053). But US20170157859 is still an application.
