SharePoint Publishing Process

Filed under: SharePoint — Tags: , , — kctnpblog @ 12:52 pm

A common request in MOSS is for the ability for users to create publishing pages such as news articles. If those publishing pages happen to involve images and other documents then the publishing process requires the author to first upload the image or document to another library (if it doesn’t already exist) and then reference the image or document in their page. If the article requires approval then this means that the approver needs to not only approve the news article but also the images and documents that have been referenced in the news article. To address this issue, I’m hoping that:

  1. the picture library and document library are both configured such that the items posted onto those libraries need approval.
  2. the page layouts on the page library can be customised such that the author is given a link to upload images and documents directly from the page being authored
  3. a custom workflow runs after the out of box approval workflow has run on the publishing page to then automatically approve the images and the documents referenced by the page.

I’ll be experimenting with this concept and will post once I have some more news on how this could be addressed.
