The Simple Approval Workflow is one three workflows included with the Comala Workflows Lite app: 

This approval workflow consists of two states: ReviewRejected;  and Approved, and allows you to ensure that content is reviewed and signed-off:

  • both the Review and Rejected states have a content review
  • users with edit permission can undertake the approve or reject decision for each content review
  • specific users can be assigned as reviewers to the content reviews
  • automatically defines content as approved (Approved state) or draft (Review and Rejected states)
  • if the page or blog post is edited in the Approved or Rejected states, the content will automatically transition to the Review state when the change is saved
  • users with View-only permissions will be directed to view the latest approved version of the content
  • a due date can be set on Approved state, when this expires the content will automatically transition to the Review state. If you require specific page expiry behaviour, consider using the Content Expiry Workflow

The Simple Approvals Workflow is one of three installed workflows for use in Workflows Lite, each with different states and transitions.
