This documentation relates to the 5.2 release of Comala Workflows

 Documentation for other versions of Comala Workflows is available too.


The approvals report is used to display lists of content review information. It's great for keeping track of the content reviews taking place across multiple spaces.


By default, this report is only available to users who can Add content (pages or blog posts) to the space.

Admins can make it available to everyone by changing the Workflow Activity and Drafts Visibility setting.

  1. In the editor, choose Insert → Other Macros → Reporting → Workflow Report
  2. Set the Type setting to approvals
