Hi there.

I'm looking to use the out-of-the-box approval workflow, to allow the approval/rejection of discussion list items when a new item is added by a public user.

The idea will be that a discussion list item will not be displayed to public users until it has been approved. How can this be achieved I'm guessing it will be some security configuration

Could someone point me in the right direction with this


Re: SharePoint - Workflow Hide unapproved discussion list items.


Did you look at the versioning settings for the discussion list

If you set "Require content approval for submitted items " to Yes, then you have an opportunity to select whether the draft items (not yet approved items) will be visible to all users, or just to the author and approvers.

I hope this helps!
