Mugo's eZ Collaboration Workflow extension has been released for a few years now. We've been able to make continuous improvements over time to solve different and more complex client needs. Here's an update on some of the recent new functionality around multi-language workflows, editing other users' drafts, and scheduled publishing.
Clients running multi-language sites often require approval workflows for new content translations. With eZ Collaboration Workflow, we can configure dedicated translators, reviewers and approvers per language. Items in the workflow can be filtered by language, and whenever an item moves through the workflow, the system can send e-mail notifications to related users and user groups.
Mugo has added two new features:
By default, users cannot edit other users' drafts in eZ Publish when the content is in the workflow. Instead, they have to "reject" the draft and send a note back to the original writer. With eZ Collaboration Workflow, if a reviewer needs to make a change to another user's draft, they can click a single button that brings them straight to edit mode. The reviewer can immediately make the required changes and then send the page for publishing or on to the next step in the workflow.
In eZ Publish you can schedule a page to go live at a future date. eZ Collaboration Workflow takes this one step further by enabling you to schedule different versions of a page, so that updates can automatically go live at specific times.
