  • Bypass approval process of SharePoint page publishing process? George2

    I am using SharePoint 2007 + Windows Server 2008 with SharePoint 2007's publishing portal template.

    When publish a page, I have to go through check-in/request for approval/approve process. Any solutions to skip request for approval and approval process (i.e. when we check-in an item, it will be published directly without approval)?

  • You can remove the Workflow and Approval Process from the pages Library.

    To do so Site Actions - > View All Site Content - > Open Pages Lib and In the Pages Library select Settings -> Document Library Settings -> Versioning settings

    Select the Following Say no to Require content approval for submitted items? Select No Versioning

    And In Workflow settings you can remove the Workflow.

  • I am using SharePoint Server 2007 x64 and Windows Server 2008 x64. I have setup a site with the publishing portal template. I have granted anonymous access to the entire site. When updating/checking-in a page, an approval notification email is sent in order to complete the page publishing approval process. Is there any setting to skip sending outgoing email for this approval process? Sending the email is an excessive step for my department.

  • I have an InfoPath form embedded in a MOSS 2007 page. The form is for requesting approval for a project. The submit button submits the form data to a form library. That triggers a workflow to get approval for the request. So far, my workflow uses the "Collect Data From User" action and the "Send and email" action. I configured data collection option so that there are two inputs: two radio buttons for approve/reject and a comment field. I built the email body and subject using dynamic strings and variables from the form data. I would like this approval process to be simple for the person

  • I have an InfoPath form that starts a workflow (on item created). The business requirement is that after submission form must be read-only (no changes to the initial request can be made). However workflow must change certain properties of the form (e.g. approval time, approval phase etc.). By default SharePoint workflows run under initiator account, however I am wondering would you recommend creating an event handler that is going to kick start a workflow under system account. Workflow would than be able to revoke all the contribute privileges but still be able to update the form during

  • I have a requirement to design a multi level approval workflow using SPD 2007. The workflow has three levels of approval. If the 1st or 2nd or 3rd level of approvers rejects the task it should go back to the previous level of user to continue with the same workflow instance. The workflow should not stop since when the InfoPath form is updated in the Forms library, a new WF instance... steps in an approval workflow using SPD 2007. Is it possible to use any custom actions to do this?

  • sorry if this is a noob question, but I have to start somewhere! I'm working with Sharepoint 2007. I have a custom content type, Room Booking Event. When one is created, I want to start a workflow... there in Outlook (using an InfoPath form?) If thats not possible, I could include a link to the content approval page I'm really not sure where to start here. I have had a look at the OOTB approval... around Sharepoint Designer 2007, but I can't figure out how to email an InfoPath form with the event details and an 'apprve/reject' button. Grateful for any advice. Thanks!

  • I'd like to turn off Content Approval, for all libraries, (Page, Document, Images) once, at a Site Collection level and, hopefully, it will be automatically set across the entire site collection. Having it off helps during the development of a Publishing Site. Once all the content/web parts are in then it would be good to turn it back on before going to UAT/Prod. Having approval workflows start in dev is just a waste of time. I'm working in SP2010, but MOSS 2007 is still relevant as I have sites in both platforms.
