Workflow States

Workflow States

  • Represent a step in the workflow process
  • Each activity associated with items before publication corresponds to a workflow state
  • An initial state and final state must be defined for each workflow
  • Should reflect the work processes and procedures that have been implemented in your organization for creating Web content
  • Should correspond to the creation, review, and approval stages that content items must go through before they are published on your Web site

Initial State

  • A field of a workflow that indicates the initial state of that workflow

Final State

  • A checkbox type field of a state that indicates that the item has successfully reached the end of the workflow when it is in this state
