Approve/Reject without editing

  Asked By: Scottie    Date: Sep 20    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 2284

This may be a silly question, but is there a feasible way to allow a user to
approve or reject a list item without giving that person edit rights?

They don't have to have add or delete but they do have to have edit  because they
are going to change the status of the item  from 'Pending' to something...

You can see all of the permissions dependencies by creating a new permission
level and deselecting all of the permissions checkboxes. Then select the
checkboxes of just the items you want them to have. Other checkboxes will get
added automatically. If you check Approve Items you also have to have Edit Item,
View Items, View Pages, and Open. If you uncheck any of those then Approve Items
gets unchecked by default.
