  2. Click the Contributors button above the sitemap.


  3. In the Contributors pop up you can see the list of current editors and viewers.
  4. Click Add Editor or Add Viewer button to add new user (editor or viewer) who will be in charge for approving the final sitemap.
    1. Click Add new user to add new user.

To add the approval permission to the existing users:   

  1. Click the Contributors link above your sitemap.
  2. Hover your mouse over the user’s bubble who is going to be in charge for the sitemap approval. Small blue bubble with the pencil inside will pop up. Click it to edit user details.
  3. Below user details, check the Responsible for Approval option.
  4. Click Save.
