To use Publisher's draft and approval features with Channel:Form tags you'll need to add 3 hidden fields to your forms:

<input type="hidden" name="publisher_save_status" value="draft|open" />
<input type="hidden" name="publisher_view_status" value="draft|open" />
<input type="hidden" name="lang_id" value="{publisher:current_language_id}" />

To send approval notification emails when submitting a Channel Form, add this hidden field to the form.

<input type="hidden" name="send_approval" value="y" />

If you wish to let users edit a draft version of an entry while the rest of the page is displaying Open/Published content, add this parameter to the Channel Form tag:

{exp:channel_form:form publisher_status="draft"}
