Approving to PublishLink to this section

View files submitted to you for approval in Dashboard > Workflow. There are three approval actions you can take on a submitted file, as follows:

  • Publish a file submitted to you for approval the same way you would normally publish a file.
  • Reassign the file.
    • This can be useful for sending the file to another user to publish.
  • Decline the file to reject the publish.
    • The file is checked in and available for additional edits. 
    • Select the "Revert to Previous Version" checkbox to discard edits since the last saved version.

When you publish, reassign, or decline a file, you can also send a message with the page. These messages are visible for each file in Dashboard > Workflow.
