Approving changes

New content, and changes to existing content must be checked and approved before they are made available on your website.


When you're approving content, you will need to:

  • ensure the correct categories have been assigned
  • check that the metadata is appropriate
  • check that there are no glaring formatting errors such as large paragraphs or long links
  • check for spelling and grammar errors

Sending content for approval

  1. When editing a piece of content, click the Submit button. The "Send for Approval" panel will open.
  2. You can include a helpful comment for the reviewer by adding it to the textarea.
  3. Click the Send for Approval button to submit your request.

The comments you add when submitting content will be added to the history log for this page. You can view the history log by selecting View History from the Actions menu.

Your reviewers will now be notified that they have a new task (if they have enabled workflow email alerts) and see a new task in their task list.
