I need to seperate our users into two primary groups. Similar to another post on here actually. However I'm looking to use InstantKB's workflow capabilities to faciliate the seperation of users into two groups: Content Developers & Article Publishers
I've created seperate staff depts & permissions for these groups such that the only real major difference between them is that a Publisher will be able to edit articles they didn't create (and content developers can only edit their own articles they created).
Ideally I'd like to have Content developers only be able to create articles for private access (i.e. hide the Public option from the access drop down menu). But I don't see a method for accomplishing this.
So instead I'd like to create a workflow that we implement as part of our business process that has the following stages.
1. Draft - Keeps items in Private access
2. Review - Still in Private Access, while Publisher user reviews article content against misc business standards.
3. Revise - Private access - used when publisher essentially "rejects" an article so it needs to be revised by original author
4. Publish - moves to public access.
Ok so that was the back history, where I'm at today is that the WF i've created doesn't seem to allow anybody but an administrator edit an article when it's in the Draft, Review, or Revise WF Steps. I can only re-edit something as a Publisher or Content Developer once it's been published.
So In effect my WF isn't quite behaving as anticipated.
For each of the steps I've still got all users as having Edit permissions within the WF Steps So theoretically I'd have expected the any user to be able to re-edit an article at any stage of the WF, but such is not the case.
Anybody have any thoughts on this? I can provide additional detail as needed.
