How do I set owner or status of an article?
You can use article status to track the progress of an article from creation to review to approval. This setting is only to help you with your workflow. It does not affect how the article is displayed to the end user.
Click on the article's title
Modify Owner and/or Status
Bulk Edit Owner or Status
If you want to set the owner or status of a number of articles in a manual all at once then use the Bulk Edit Article Properties feature. It is available when viewing a manual.
