After you have finished editing the content of a page or a content item, you must set its status. This procedure describes the options you have for publishing, scheduling, and saving your content items or pages if you are using a Standard lifecycle management (Standard workflow), Approval before publishing (one level of approval) type of workflow, and 2 levels of approval before publishing type of workflow. Use this procedure to set the status of the following types of content items or pages:
NOTE: If you want to edit a published or scheduled content item or page, you must first open it and save it as draft. If you are using Approval before publishing or 2 levels of approval before publishing type of workflow and you want to manage an item or page in status Published or Scheduled, see procedures Manage pages and content items in status Published and Manage pages and content items in status Scheduled respectively.
NOTE: If you are using Approval before publishing or 2 levels of approval before publishing type of workflow and you want to manage an item or page in status Awaiting approval or Awaiting publishing, see procedures Manage pages and content items in status Awaiting approval and Manage pages and content items in status Awaiting publishing respectively.
