Note that the Gutenberg editor has been integrated directly into the WordPress Administrator dashboard as of WordPress version 5.0. It is now the default WordPress editor.

Posts or pages that are in draft status can be flagged for review using an option called Pending Review.  The editor provides this option using a slider. Follow the directions below to learn how to use the Pending Review option in the Gutenberg editor.

Your post or page must be in a draft status in order to set the Pending Review flag. If you have published it, then you will not have this option. You can revert a published document to a draft using the link in the top right corner labeled Switch to draft.

  1. Login to your WordPress Administrator Dashboard.
  2. Open an existing draft of a page or post in the editor. You can also create a new page or post.
  3. In the right hand column, click on the slider for Pending Review. This will activate the flag for the review requirement.
  4. Click on Save Draft to save your changes at this point.  Note that clicking on Publish will remove your pending Review flag.

The flag is simply a marker so that you note posts or pages that need review. If you publish the page/post, then the flag will be cleared. This completes the tutorial on setting the Pending Review in the Gutenberg editor.
