Content approval option - Issues with multiple edition RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi everyone, 

    I'm working in a list that should allow multiple users to edit different columns, but using the approval content option . 

    My issue is that the approval content option does not allow more than one edition withouth approval. So my users couldn't edit some item that was already edit and has the approval status as "pending". 

    This message pops up: "A later version of this item has already been modified. Other users can not edit the item until that version is approved or published".

    Someone knows how to enable a multiple editing without having to approve?



    Please let me know if I wasn't clear enough.

  • everyedit will produce a new version.

    you can try that, set event receiver, when the version is not a approved or published one, don't produce new version.
