Pending Approval for File Exchange

4 views (last 30 days)
I uploaded three "links to External Website" to share some matlab toolboxes in the File Exchange section.
After one week, these still appear with a "Pending Approval" status.
Does anyone know who long can it take to be "approved"? And if there is any way to ask / contact who is in charge to approve?

You can contact MathWorks by using the Contact button on top of this page: the phone icon. Direct link:
By the way, do adolescent Matlab users known what this symbol means:
It is a bone you can speak with using an elektrical connection. It was very fancy over a long period of time in the past.

thanks for your humorous answer.
I thought the contact link was addressed only to technical issues related to Matlab....

I have the same issue : my file exchange submission is stuck with the Pending Approval status since a few days now.
Is it possible to contact the support team by mail ?
Else is there any hope for the situation to unlock by itself after a little while ? (meaning my file to be approved, since there is nothing special about it).
Thanks for your answers.
Edit : solve with call to the tech support
