Kentico - Proper Workflow
These are the normal steps from creating a page to publishing it to the web.
|EXISTING PAGE||NEW PAGE|
| 1. Create a new version (document is now locked for your editing.)
|| 1. Create a new Page (document is now locked for your editing.)
| 2. Edit document and "preview" changes. (You need to SAVE in order to see a preview) *If you've been 'saving' and then decide you want to revert to the latest version (undoing all of your changes - click on the "Undo checkout".) Otherwise, be sure to Check-in your document in order to create a new version! NOTE: "Save" does NOT create a new version - "Check in" is critical!
| 3. Check In
A comment isn't required, but at this level (before submitting for publishing) it's helpful for others in the department or work group to know what changes have been made.
| 4. Submit for Approval (Publish Live!)
A comment isn't required, but can be very helpful to the the Marketing team that will make a decision to accept\reject the page. Please let them know if the submission contains 'slight changes' (i.e. typos, re-wording) or is a 'major change'.
Comments appear in the "Versions" pane.
An email will be sent confirming that the page has gone live.
