In various parts of the interface, you will see a circle followed by a workflow state name. The circle indicates the nature of the state and, in some cases, whether the current user is currently assigned to a content review.

Note: Colours listed on this page are app defaults; they can be overridden by the color parameter on a {state} macro.

Summary

The various circles are summarised below (click image to zoom).
