Saving a document

You can save a document in different moderation states.

Draft

If you create a document in the CMS and are not ready to publish it, you can save it as a draft. If you save a document as a draft, it will not be public on Mass.gov, but will be available to any user.

Published

If you save your document as published, it will be public on Mass.gov and available to any user.

Unpublished

If you save your published document as unpublished, it will no longer be public on Mass.gov, but available to any user.

Trash

If you save your document as trash, the document will no longer be public on Mass.gov and unavailable to any user.

Restricted

If you save your document as restricted, it will not be public on Mass.gov and only available to the user who authored it.

If you restrict a document that you did not author, you will no longer have access to it. If you accidentally restrict a document that you need access to, submit a ServiceNow request.
