My wiki does a lot of realtime data entry, and so when I onboard new staff members for data entry, I want their edits to not go through approval before showing up on the page. But I do want them to show up as unpatrolled in Recent Changes so I can check over them at a later time. Does this extension allow for this, and if so, how can I configure it?

Give a user Editor but not autopatrol their edits
You can set
$wgFlaggedRevsOverride = false;
. Or just use the default patrol system (the disadvantage of the latter is that it’s accessible from fewer places and stores whether a revision was patrolled only for 30 days, but maybe it’s easier to configure).
The problem with that is that I still want changes from most users to be pending and not show up to regular visitors. There's basically three types of editors I need:
- Trusted editors, whose changes will be autopatrolled and accepted and immediately be live
- Trainee editors, whose changes will immediately be live for live data entry purposes, but will not be autopatrolled so that I can review what they did easily from recent changes
- Visitors who happen to edit the wiki, whose changes are both pending & unpatrolled when they edit
Is there any way to set up a system like this?
I don’t know about such settings. (There may be, though, I only know the default mode, not to speak about other extensions.)
