We have a MOSS 2007 publishing website that uses Serial Aprpoval workflow for content approval.

I have created Approvers and Contributors SP groups and use AD groups to manager group members.

Approvers are assigned Approve permission and Contributors are assigned Contribute permission.

Everything is out of the box. The problem is that when an approval request is sent to a Contributor, the Contributor can see the necessary UI and approve the page.

I double checked on user's group assignment and permissions, nothing out of line. What can be wrong?


I found a solution.
