We made it easier for users with a moderator role to access the "Moderation" section for the entire community. Just to add, the Moderation section is now enabled even if you don't have the "Moderation app3" enabled in your community. You will see the new Moderation Section when you click on your Avatar on the upper right part of your community.

We've put everything related to moderation in one place to make it easier for Moderators to monitor the entire community. Pending members (who have requested to join private groups), Pending posts (sent to the moderation because they are not meeting the rules defined in the moderation app settings), and Reported posts (for the already lived posts which are reported as spam or harassment by regular members in the community).

Users with the "Moderator" role on their community accounts can access all the items in the moderation section. They can also click on the "Feed" button to filter the items based on "Groups" so that they only see the items related to that specific group.
Users with the "Group Moderation" role can only see the items related to their group(s) in the moderation section.

Also, on top of the home feed, moderators can see a message like the one below that informs them how many items are still pending in the moderation section that they have access to.

What can the moderators expect to access in the new Moderation section?

  1. Pending members - All users asking... (More)

When you just "approve" an item from "Moderation" section, you see the items as approved. However, if you refresh the page, you won't see them anymore. 

Approved items display in the moderation section just to make sure that if you have approved them by mistake, you can click on them and send it for moderation again.

There is a hack to achieve this goal. 

You need to use the "Moderation" app for this purpose. If you want to have "all" content to be sent for moderation first, you can define the "Minimum Reputation" score for each content/activity a very high number, like 20,000. And because no user has such high reputation score in your community, therefore, the contents from all users will be sent for moderation before getting published. 

How to define these rules for moderation and what it means? You can learn more here67 and here66

"Minimum reputation" mean what is the min reputation point that is required to post something in the community without waiting for admins approval. 

"Minimum account age" means for how long a user should be in your community to be able to post content without waiting for the moderator's approval.
