The Editorial Workflow is the process used in order to create, review, edit and publish content as defined by DG Communication Unit B.3.
The purpose of the Editorial Workflow is to give the owners of a class more control over the content and prevent users from changing content that does not belong to them.
The Editorial Workflow is now in use in the CMS of the following websites:
The procedures associated with the Editorial Workflow in the CMS relate to the different roles users may have, which are the following:
Depending on the work processes of the Class and DGs, the roles can be combined to fit their work flow processes. (See Fig.1)
Each role in the Editorial Workflow gives the user different permissions in the CMS.
In the CMS it used to be possible for a user to change content, even if the content didn't belong to the user. With the Editorial Workflow, users are assigned to editorial groups/thematic classes. These classes have content associated with them, and can only be worked on if the user belongs to the class owning the content.
