Getting the seal of approval
By default, when you check out a file it has a Pending status and is only visible
to its creator and to people with permission to manage lists. When you check in
a file with a Major version change, the file still has the Pending status. The file
remains in a Pending state until approved or rejected by someone who has the
needed permission to approve it. If the item or file is approved, the status is
changed to Approved and other users can once again access the file. If the item
or file is rejected, it remains in a Pending state and is visible only to its creator.
