We are having an issue with using Experience Manager with items in workflow. Basically we can create, edit and publish things fine in Experience Manager (on a staging site) right up until the point they enter workflow. At this point it is still editable (if the task is assigned to you and the task has been started) which again is what we want and what we would expect. It shows the user the information they would expect to see (via session preview) and also saves and updates the Component correctly.
The issue however is that when Finish Activity is clicked it republishes the last major version of the edited Component rather than the users minor version. This happens even though the Component has has reached the minimum approval status for the Publication.
I have tried adding a step in the workflow to publish to the staging website which works, but this is then overwritten by the last major version as soon as the item has been edited and Finish Editing has been clicked.
So the question is really can you get Experience Manager to publish minor revisions when Finish Editing is clicked? (Obviously provided it meets minimum approval status)
