Sharepoint 2013 approve deletion of items


We have a list in sharepoint. Everytime someone adds or edits an item in this list it is send for approval through a workflow. But when somebody deletes a page it is deleted immediatly. We can find it back through recycle bin, but we're affraid that somebody deletes pages (willingly or not), and noboddy notices it immediatly, so we want that delete requests would also generate a request for approval. How can we do this?

You should try creating new permission level and SP group. After that add users to group who can perform all but can't delete

1.On the site collection level go to all site settings.
2.On site settings page click on People and Groups.
3.On this page on the left hand side menu click on "Site Permissions".
4.Inside Site Permissions you will see all the SharePoint User Groups. Click on the Settings for this list and choose "Permission Levels".
5.Here you will see that different permission levels are defined. If you click on contribute it will show you each permission this level has. can modify the permissions within "contribute" level or you can click on a "Add a permission level" and create a new permission level with your desired permissions.
7.Once this new level is created you can use this in your sharepoint groups.

Did to manage to get this issue fixed? Please let us know.
Robby SwartenbroekxMSP engineerAuthor Commented:
No, still an issue. We stress out people not to delete something and for now this is working, but can't say for how long.

Hello yagyashree,

probably you are trying to guide me through a sharepoint 2010 site. In sharepoint 2013 most things are called a little bit different.
But almost all users (except 2 persons with moderator abilities) are already member of the "Home Members" group which had those Contribute Permission Level.

I give up. I'll give you points for the assistance.
