The content authors have edited (not contribute, or approve) permissions.

Someone the publish button under the publish tab is enabled allowing them to publish. Once published the unpublish button is disabled. I thought they have to be in the approvers group in order to publish.

Has anyone an idea?


You should distinguish between two permission levels

  • Editors should edit the document then send it for approval
  • Publisher should review and publish the document and should be added to approval Group.

You can also create your custom Permission level that match your requirements

  • So basically, I've given authors the "Edit" permission, and only have myself with the "Approver" permission. The idea is that I would be the final approver and be able to publish. But these editors are also able to publish. – Gurpreet Singh Jul 15 '16 at 21:43
