    If a News (or events or generic content items) item is created or updated, with the Workflow process in place (SItefinity 3.7 SP1) is it possible to see how it looks in the page it's container is place in before the item is published, (like if it is in the pending approval and/or approved staged)?  So if the news item/event/generic content control was already on an existing page, is it possible to actually view the pending item as how it would look in the live site before it is actually published?

    We have Approvers/Publishers that need to SEE it as it would display on the live page. Such as if there is a new Press Release or Event added to the list.

    Thank you.

    Hello Laura,

    Thank you for using our services.

    Unfortunately the content view controls display only published items, so this means that when an items is in workflow the page will only show the latest published version of this item, that is if there is such version. In this line of thought the only place you can see an item in workflow, and its latest version in workflow is if you go to the module and preview the item in the module.

    Thank you. That is what I thought unfortunately.  Maybe for a future realease, there could be something where if you are in preview mode (cmspagemode=preview) you can preview the page with the content pending approval...?
