When a Component is created, it is configured to immediately enter Workflow and becomes version 0.1.
The editors would like to then add this version 0.1 to a Page, so it can be published to staging and approved in context.
However, when adding a Component Presentation only major versions are displayed. As there is no major version yet, the Component can not be added to the page.
What is the best option? I am thinking code to automatically accelerate from version 0.1 to version 1.1.
Update Following @Nuno's Answer
I like the idea of avoiding events system and keeping it contained as one workflow, however I receive the following error when using an Automatic Action (not automatic decision) step first. I will try automatic decision next.
