Setting up contributor and approver access for publishing content

Using the content approval capabilities of SharePoint, we can allow for certain users to collaborate on an item and then submit it for approval before it becomes available to other users. In this recipe, we will configure content approval on the Pages library and set up the contributor and approver groups.

With the content approval features, we can also use SharePoint workflows to streamline the approval process. SharePoint comes with the Publishing Approval Workflow feature that provides a basic approval workflow. Customized workflows may also be created with SharePoint Designer and Visual Studio.
