How do I turn on Content Approval for a SharePoint list

Written by Cornelius J. van Dyk on . Posted in How Do I...

I received a question about this in the Support Forums today, so I decided to jot down the steps quickly for future seekers of knowledge…
To turn on Content Approval, follow these steps:
  1. Navigate to the list for which Content Approval is to be turned on.
  2. Click “Settings” next to the “Actions” menu.  If you do NOT see “Settings”, it means you are not an Administrator of that list.  You must have Administrative rights over the list to be able to do this.
  3. On the dropdown menu for “Settings”, click “List Settings”.
  4. On the List Settings page, under General Settings, click the “Version Settings” link.
  5. On the Version Settings page, set the “Require content approval for submitted items” option to “Yes” and click the “OK” button.
That’s it!  Enjoy…

Cheers

Just got spammed again…

Written by Cornelius J. van Dyk on . Posted in Blog

This message is for the person out there that loves to spam my blog with links for cheap medications… Thank you so much for your spam attempt… my readers won’t ever see it because content approval is turned on for my blog, so you might as well give up. Oh yes, it used to be a major pain to manage the comments list after you would spam me, but I solved that by writing my own little tool too so… just give it up already!
