2.9 Workflows

With workflows you can publish, translate or synchronize content items or projects in an ordered process. One editor starts the workflow and another editor (or the same) proceeds. You can keep track of the state of a workflow and see all finished workflows. Workflows are managed in the Control Room (see Section 2.4.2, “Control Room”).

Starting a publication workflow

CoreMedia Studio supports the following workflows:

  • Direct publication

    When starting the workflow, the content is automatically published.

  • Reviewed publication

    When starting the workflow, it is offered to other users who have to approve the content before it is published. You can either select specific users or groups or it is offered to all users with the appropriate rights.

  • Translation

    When starting the workflow, it is offered to you and others. The only exception is when you, as local site manager, start a workflow for translating master contents directly to your preferred site. In this case the workflow is directly assigned to you and you cannot offer it to anyone else. After accepting the workflow you can either send the content to a translation agency, translate it manually or do not translate it at all.

  • Synchronization

    When starting the workflow, the changes of the content are automatically propagated to the synchronized content.

The Control Room is the GUI where you can manage your workflows.

Starting Workflows

Publication and localization workflows can be started using the toolbar or context menu buttons in the Control Room panels or the Library. Alternatively content can simply be dragged and dropped into the Publication Workflows or the Synchronization Workflows panel in the Control Room.
