SharePoint Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for SharePoint enthusiasts. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have created a publishing site which contain enterprise wiki and for some sites I define that I contents require approval before being published. Currently the new wiki article will not be published unless a user with an “Approve” permission goes and approve it. But I need to know if there is a way so that SharePoint can automatically send an email to all the users which have “Approve permission” so that they know that there is a wiki article which is waiting their approvals.

Best Regards

Would you not add a workflow to the list to make this happen? –  Stephen Apr 25 '13 at 11:55

You can use workflows to accomplish this. Turn on Content approval, then create a workflow that has the email and approval elements you require. Here are some resources to help you along:
