How does Workflow work? Any documentation?1 user found helpful
I'm trying to get to grips with the new Workflow feature in 220.127.116.11 but it's not working as I expected it to, and there's no documentation. Can anyone give the community a quick description of how to set it up?
I have two groups (Admins and Editors) and I want Editors to be able to create a page but not publish it, and for Admins to be notified about the new page and publish it.
Attached is how I've set it up, with Admins added to 'Notify on Entry' and Editors excluded from 'Approve or Deny'.
I've attempted to create a page as an Editor and I can do that, except I can't add any blocks to the Areas (might be a separate issue). On the plus side I only have the Preview button and not the Publish button, so that looks good.
When I log in as an Admin I don't have any notification via email or anything and there's nothing in the 'Waiting for Me' list.
Any thoughts? Am I missing the point/idea?
Help much appreciated!
Does mention workflow for a while.
There's just one thing -- it's not 100% clear what the workflow events mean:
-Approve or Deny
-Notify on Entry
-Notify on Approve
-Notify on Deny
Approve or Deny makes sense (e.g. Approve/deny publication of a page, approve/deny moving of a page etc) but I'm not clear on the others. Can anyone clarify?
I want to have a group (eg 'sub editors') which cannot approve pages, and a user/group ('admin editors') which is notified when a sub editor makes a change and can then approve that change. The notification shouldn't happen when a member of admin editors makes a change, and they should be able to publish pages immediately without having to submit to workflow first.
Does anyone know how I would achieve this? The settings are a bit confusing, unfortunately :)
There appear to be no bug reports so if expected behaviour is not as expected then lets post a bug report ...I'll be seeing how it goes later ...
