Allow existing site pages to be added to the "News"
I see these pages have a "Promoted State" and "FirstPublishedDate" that are used to determine if a page should be shown as News, but these properties cannot be changed. I want to be able to take an existing site page, and publish it as News.
Alternatively, you could let me publish news to a library separate from the site pages so I'm not cluttering my wiki page library.
I concur with Jonathan about publishing news to a separate library.
In our intranet, we only require content approval for news. The recently released 'out of the box' page approvals applies to all pages regardless of purpose. Our organization's intranet team staffing level cannot support review of all pages on our intranet, but we can handle news approvals.
Oh, and pls don´t Forget to implement a "demote-news" button, so that a page that was promoted to News falsly can be demoted back to page again. Or when the timespan a News is a News expired but the info it contains Needs to be pertained as "normal" page.
