    Hello, 

    I have an issue where authors and editors cannot change the library a document is in when editing from the Edit document properties page. The changes are just ignored when Send for approval or Publish are clicked. We have a standard workflow approval process in place.

     

    The same users can move documents using the Actions drop down from the library screen. Also, as an Admin I appear to be able to save a document and change the library while editing.

     

    This is using Sitefinity 8.2. I would like to know why this is happening. Any help appreciated. 

     

    Cheers,

    Simon.

    Hi, 

    I've been trying to test the scenario and behavior you are describing but so far I am unable to reproduce this.

    Here is what I did and a small video as demonstration.
    (The window on the right shows the admin user's backend, the one on the left is the Author's backend)
    http://screencast.com/t/S421wDASKfKm

    If you could please verify and tell me what I am doing differently or if you are having a different setup and/or behavior.
    - I defined a standard workflow
    - I created a user (myauthor) with the Authors role.
    - I have 2 libraries with 1 document in the 1st Library.
    - the myauthor user logs on and edit the document's properties;
        - changes the library.
        - saves the document
        - send for approval

    - now the document is in the 2nd Library in status: Awaiting approval.
    - and can be published by the admin user.

    Hey Dimitri,

    I can easily recreate the issue. It doesn't happen from the Content > Documents & Files menu, but happens from the My content and Everyone's content widgets in the backend. Here is a screencast: 

    http://screencast.com/t/DK0HSZskwh

     

    It happens in all browsers, and to all user types (Admin, Editor, Author). 

     

    Cheers,

    Simon
