The Editor is responsible for creating, revising and shepherding terms through the approval process. As an Editor, you can import terms into the glossary from files or create them manually. These terms start in the Draft status. The workflow can allow any glossary user to propose a term. A proposed term starts in the Candidate status. The Editor of the category where the term is proposed can accept the term by promoting it to Draft or deleting it. The user who created the term can edit and delete it as long as it is Candidate.
When the approval activity is disabled the Editor is solely responsible for the terms’ workflow. In this case, the Editor takes on the Publisher’s responsibilities and can publish terms when the Editor deems ready.
