I'm new to SharePoint 2010 and am creating numerous Publishing sites with workflows, each for a different department. Each department needs to have a few people assigned to be able to create pages, add/edit list items, etc., within that site. The sites are all based on the default master page (no modifications) and some custom page layouts.
The SharePoint server is tied to Active Directory. What's the best way to enable permissions on each site to the departments, keeping in mind that we might need some users to create/edit content while someone else reviews/approves the content via workflows?
In this scenario, our lists and page layouts are based on custom site columns and content types. Is it wise to open it up to non-IT people to create lists? What level of permissions do you usually give the departmental users?
Can you point me to some resources on this subject? Your guidance and help is appreciated. Thanks :)
