Sitecore Tip: Content Author minimum roles

 At a bare minimum, you want your content authors to have these OOTB roles: 

  • sitecore\Sitecore Client Advanced Publishing
  • sitecore\Sitecore Client Designing
  • sitecore\Sitecore Client Authoring
You should also have custom roles to further classify your content authors, e.g.: 
  • Site Owner (Content Author "admin" for a specific site) 
  • Workflow Approver/Reader (to push/approve items through workflows)
  • etc
