How To - Create Content - The Publishing Workflow TabLast Updated on 2013-09-26 11:02:15The Publishing Workflow Tab using the Trunity Default Workflow
When you click the Create button you will have a number of options to continue the process of editing, improving and publishing that content. Use of the Publishing Workflow tab will begin the process of reviewing and publishing that content. The steps that are contained within the Publishing Workflow tab are determined by the Administrator for the site. If the Administrator is the sole user of the site, e.g. they are creating a textbook or course for their own use, the default Trunity Workflow Management will likely meet their needs. The default Workflow consists of a two step process. The Author uses the Workflow tab to move his completed draft of the content from Pending to Published. The following images illustrate this process.

How To - Create Content - The History TabLast Updated on 2013-09-26 09:57:53The History Tab and Drafts of Content
As the Author and Editors work on a content item, they will often need the option to view earlier drafts of the content. Each time any person in the content creation workflow clicks the Create or Save buttons, a Draft of the content is preserved and will be visible under the History Tab for that content. Each of these previous Drafts can be viewed, but they can not directly replace the active Draft. To do this, the previous Draft can be copied using standard cut and paste techniques. Once the content item completes the workflow process and is Published, all the Drafts are deleted and cannot be recovered.

How To - Create Content - The Content TabLast Updated on 2013-09-26 09:46:25When an Author begins the process of Creating Content, one of the first pages they will need to work with is located under the Content Tab. The data fields under this tab contain material specific to each content type that is supported on the Trunity Platform. This means that this tab has different fields for an Article than for a Video. When the Author begins to create a new content item, they will see a limited set of tabs and the Content Tab will automatically be open.
Limited Initial Tab Set
If at some point the Author wishes to change the actual content type, the use of the drop down at the top of this tab will allow that. There may be additional information required as a result of the content type change, but the new fields will be displayed for the Author to complete.
