Questions tagged [workflow]

Workflow is a module that allows the definition of business processes which can be applied to content. For example: approval of content before publishing. Process definitions are defined in Visio. Some process tasks may be automated with VBScript in Tridion 2011 or less and in C# in Tridion 2013.
