The current workflow added to a space or added as a page workflow can be modified in a number of simple ways to reflect the individual needs of the team or the project.
In a space, you have the option to modify to the current workflow template but
- any changes to any workflow template will be limited to its current use, either on the individual page or as a space workflow in the current space
- if a different workflow is added to the space, any changes will be lost
The source workflow bundled with the app is not changed or updated.
The modification options include changing state names, setting custom action labels for the approval, configuring the read confirmation request and adding a content filter for a space workflow.
You cannot add or remove states, change state transitions or approvals in Comala Document Control.
Modifying your workflow
Either choose Edit Workflow in Page Tools menu on the page or Edit Workflow in space tools Document Control dashboard.
This gives access to workflow builder
The Workflow Builder consists of the Workflow Navigator displaying a visual workflow diagram and the Workflow Panel.
