Content Approval - for users except self if i am the approver

We have approvals enabled. But since i´m one of the approvers, by user or by role, doesnt matter, I should not need to click "Send for approval"-->"Approve"-->"Publish" to Publish stuff (also i get mails and notifications) I should be able to Publish right away.

That would be neat. Fair?

Request from my editors

Regards

    Definitely a +1 from me as well. :-)

    Seems very reasonable. +1

    I'm late to the party here but if you editors really want this feature then you could reverse the usage of the isUserInApprovalSequence() method I blogged about here and just publish instead:

    Bear in mind they would lose the ability to add a approval comment if thats how the sequence has been configured.

    Welcome to the party, don´t seem to be able to approve from EPiServer.ContentEventArgs, e.Cancel is easy, but you don-t have a e.Approve. any thoughts?

    Would be lovely even before push button to have the Publish instead of "Send for Approval" if user is approver.

    I would probably need to build a custom approval step... still..
