In daily business use it is often required to have comments on your list item or document in a SharePoint 2010 list or library. Before you start: It is recommended to plan this. SharePoint 2010 allows you to configure comments on list items or documents, but you have to do some (ootb) configuration.
The Default view of the e-mail template in SharePoint 2010 does not allows BCC fields. It is possible to add BCC fields for e-mails in your workflow. To activate this you have to fall back on a short trick: Insert your planned BCC recepient into the CC field of the e-mail. In SharePoint Designer navigate to the folder that holds the newly created workflow files (usaually it is stored under /sitename/workflows > navigate to "All files" then "Workflows). Open the XOML file of the workflow with Notepad (use right-click). Then search for the CC and BCC field and change CC with BCC (you will find them in the :EmailActivity node). Save the file, reopen the workflow, doublecheck the empty CC field, republish, thats it!

Therefore custom ribbon buttons are provided which call an application page (one per action, reject, approve, publish). The application page gets the selected items via query string parameter. The processing is done in the application pages, after the page closes the lists are refreshed. # 30. Oktober, 2014
