Publishing a Page via By-Pass Approval

Almost every page is assigned a workflow so Content Authors can Submit them and Content Approvers can review them before approving. System Administrators can by-pass this approval process and publish the item without approval with the By-Pass Approval function.

To By-Pass the approval process from the Content Editor,

  1. Select the page you want to publish.
  2. Check the Page out (Lock it) if not already.
  3. Select the Home tab and choose the Edit icon Edit button to view a drop down of options.
  4. Select the Check in icon By-Pass Approval option. A comment dialog box will appear.
    By-Pass Approval process option
  5. Enter in your comment.
    Comment dialog  box
  6. Select the OK button.

The page is now checked in, published and viewable on the Live website.
