About this task

After reviewing, an approver can either accept or reject a publication. If an approver does not review a publication before the Publish Date, the publication cannot be approved. The Approve button is not displayed and the approver sees a message that the publish date and time has passed. The approver can only reject the publication, which returns it to the Author stage.

The Approvers related list displays a list of approval tasks and includes most recent comment from each approver.
