Content reviews (known as approvals) are key events in the content production lifecycle, where reviewers check the content and decide whether to approve or reject the content. Based on this decision the workflow moves the content to a new workflow state. For each review, you can assign one or more users as reviewers.
Workflow tasks provide similar functionality to Confluence tasks, but they are stored at page level rather than in the content itself. They can be added manually by a user or by the workflow itself. Tasks can be assigned to specific users.
Using workflow parameters in your workflow allows you to create a workflow that can be used for different teams or projects but with these values set elsewhere, within a space or on a specific document.
One or more workflow parameters can easily be added to a workflow using workflow builder
A workflow parameter can be set to use one of the following data types
a list of set values
These parameter references can be accessed in the workflow by their name wrapped in @ (at) symbol and used in a range of macros including the approval macro, the state-selection macro and trigger macros.
Examples of the use of workflow parameters include
Comala workflows are scripted using macro notation, which is stored in a template. Templates can then be applied to individual pages (in Page Mode), or more usually in production mode to all content across a space (in Space Mode).
Workflows can be created and edited using the visual editing tool workflow builder.
