Approval notification

Approval notification

Friday 07 November 2003 3:13:25 pm - 8 replies

Now, e-mails are sent whenever a new article is published (got a keep-me-updated at root), but is it possible to receive e-mails whenever I need to approve an article?
And if that's possible, is it also possible that the writer of the article is notificated whether or not the article was approved?

My first question is the most important one.

Can this be done?

ps: Whenever someone replies to a topic, why doesn't the topic 'move to the top' ?? Very annoying!

Doesn't anyone know the answer, or does nobody see this topic?

So once again, anyone?

Hello Mark,
I at least see your posts, and Im sure its possible. But I dont know how much work it would take, but its a good idea. You would have to do something with the workflow-system I guess, and looking at all the posts dealing with this topic, I'd say its HARD!

I do agree with you on the annoying part about topic not moving to the top. Its annoying, and remarkably strange the people making such a system, dont seem how to use it blunk.gif Emoticon

It's possible to get notifications when you need to approve an item (same for the author), all you need to do is go to the notification settings page (notification/settings) and check the Approve checkbox under Collaboration.

There is no support for notifications to the author when the the article has been approved (or rejected) yet.

Works great. Thank you.

I don't know, somehow, in some way, I just overlooked the darn checkbox big-smile.gif Emoticon
