a list or library is set to require content approval, views are added
to the regular list views to help you manage the approval of files or
list items. You see those views only if you have approval permissions
on the list or library.
To see what files are waiting for your approval, select Approve/Reject Items, as shown in Figure1.
The Approve/Reject Items view shows you all the items, grouped by their
status. To see the ones that are awaiting approval, look under the
Pending group (see Figure 2).
