Workflows typically include steps that require a person to perform an activity on a page or asset. The workflow selects a user or group to perform the activity and assigns a work item to that person or group. The user receives notification and can then take the appropriate action:

Notifications of Available Workflow Actions

When you are assigned a work item (for example, Approve Content) various alerts and/or notifications appear:

  • Your notification indicator (toolbar) will be incremented:

    chlimage_1
  • The item will be listed in your notification Inbox:

    chlimage_1
  • When you are using the page editor the status bar will show:

    • The name of the workflow(s) being applied to the page; for example Request for Activation.
    • Any actions available to the current user for the current step of the workflow; for example, Complete, Delegate, View details.
    • The number of workflows that the page is subject to. You can:
      • use the left/right arrows to navigate through the status information of the various workflows.
      • click/tap on the actual number to open a drop down list of all applicable workflows, then select the workflow you want displayed in the status bar.
    chlimage_1

    Opomba:

    The status bar is only visible to users with workflow privileges; for example, members of the workflow-users group.

    Actions are shown when the current user is directly involved in the current step of the workflow.

  • When Timeline is open for the resource, the workflow step will be shown. When you click/tap on the alert banner, the available actions will also be shown:
