Manage - Action Button
What is it?
The Manage option allows members with Edit access or above to see the Publishing status of all content within a channel. All content within this area is broken into categories that include Drafts, Published, Unpublished, and In Review.
The Manage area also allows you to manage an item in a channel with an assigned Moderator. This area provides access to any items in a channel that have been sent to Moderation.
Features and functionality
Items posted to a channel are organized into categories that reflect their publishing status: Draft, Published, Unpublished, and In Review. Read about each below.
Drafts - Items that are currently being worked on but are not ready to be published or reviewed.
In review - Items that have been sent to a Moderator for review and approval.
Assigned - An item will appear as Assigned if a Moderator chooses to assign an item to another person.
Unassigned - If a Moderator does not assign the item to another person and chooses to moderate the item themselves, the item will live under Unassigned.
Published - Items that are published and currently live in the community.
Unpublished - Items that are ready to publish but are waiting in queue for their set publishing date.
