What is a Workflow?
A workflow codifies a business or compliance process in to...
States and Transitions
These define the milestones (states) and routes between them (transitions) of your process.
Tasks and Reviews
Workflow tasks provide similar functionality to Confluence tasks, however they are stored at page level rather than in the content itself.
Reviews are key events in the content production lifecycle, where reviewers check the content and decide whether it can progress to the next state.
Events → Triggers → Actions
As users interact with content and the workflow, events are sent which can be used to trigger actions. Use these to augment the content production process and automate workflow transitions.
Workflows are scripted using macro notation, which is stored in a template. Templates can then be applied to individual pages (in Page Mode), or all content within a space (in Space Mode).
