Workflows in Joomla 4

Post by RustyJoomla » Fri Nov 13, 2020 2:07 pm

Hi all, as we all know Joomla 4 is on the horizon and the improvement to workflows are definitely an interesting addition.

From what I've seen, the workflow works great for new content, but what about content that's already live that needs to be edited? Could this be used in conjunction with the article version control which set's an edited article to the beginning of the workflow whilst the live version remains live until the edits are approved?

Anyone had any thoughts on this?

When Brian gives you the thumbs down on any idea or suggestion, you can bet that it isn't going anywhere. He has a good handle on things and sorts out those that a not within the overall scheme. In most instances, he is 100% correct.

Have you noticed the new sample Workflows in the latest nightly build? It now has two, the default and another when you add sample data. Only problem is the companion User Groups are not created; nor are faux users within the groups. At the minimum, User Groups that accompany the action steps in the Workflow should be created.
