Hi there,

When I put a product on pending on the default language, this is not carried across to the other language pages. This seems abolutely crazy for me as it creates so much work.

I then have to go to WooCommerce Multilingual and resave the language versions in question so that they also have a "pending" status.

Why is it like this? If I put a "pending" product status on a product page in my default language, it should automatically set the other language versions of this product page to the same status. But it doesn't..

The publication status between post types will be synced if the following configuration options is enabled:

WPML > Settings > Posts and pages synchronization >Copy publishing date to translations

Can you please check if this setting is checked? By default, I think it might be off.
