Workflows determine the editing and verification steps a file is subject to on its way to being released. The Content Management Server automatically assigns the workflow defined in the file format upon which the file is based to every draft version of a newly created file (see Workflows).
If you would like to create, edit or delete a workflow, switch to the Workflows section by clicking on the Workflow tab in the Configuration area.
This page is also displayed if you click the Browse or Add button in a dialog in order to select a workflow. In this case, the New button is not present and a Cancel button is provided in the upper area of the page allowing you to cancel the selection action if required.
Use the search function of the Workflows section to display the workflows. If you would like to only display the workflows whose names contain a particular search text, enter the search text in the Show workflows whose name contains field and click on the Search button. A list of workflows whose names contain the search text is then displayed in the main area of the section. If you would like to search for workflows which contain a different search text, enter this search text in the Show workflows whose name contains field and click again on the search button. If you would like to have all available workflows displayed, leave the entry field empty and click on the Search button.
The number of workflows contained in the list depends on your personal preferences. There might be a sequence of numbers in ascending order above and below the list. Each number refers to an additional results page which you can display by clicking on the number. You can also switch forwards and backwards (using next and previous).
If this page was displayed because you clicked the Browse or Add button in a dialog, you can now select a workflow by simply clicking its name.
If you click on the name of a workflow listed, the Content Manager displays all the available information concerning this workflow on the its view page:
