View Draft and pending documents RRS feed

  • Question

    • On my document library everyone with edit permission can see Drafts and Pending. How can I limit this access to people who can only approve it? In versioning setting there is an option for 'Only users who can approve items' but how can I use that?

  • Hi,

    You may refer to this article:


    Quote from the above article:

    Draft Item Security section   . Use this section to determine who should see drafts of items that are not yet approved.

    Important    The set of options in this section are only available when the Content Approval section is set to Yes.

    You can allow any user who has Read permissions to the list to view the drafts, or you can restrict the view to only those users who can edit items or to only the author of the item and the people who can approve items.
