  1. Hi,is it possible in sharepoint services.My requirement is with single click all pending requests has to be checked to approve the docs same as above.But i am using sharepoint 3.0.Please suggest any other alternatives

  2. do you have an alternate suggestion for SharePoint Foundation 2013?
    1) i do not want end users going to Site Settings
    2) i do not have “Content and structure logs” link in Site Administration.

    • There is no alternate way unless you have to write a custom code to do this.

      you can develop a custom ribbon action and behind this button you approve all selected items.

  3. Its a lot easier and user with Approval right can do it, Select items you need to approve or reject(check mark on the left)=>in Ribbon Select ITEMS, Select Approve/Reject (at the end on the right)

  4. Approving in bulk was very easy in SP2010. Why is it now so difficult? This makes no sense.
