Add a prompt on selected workflow transitions for the user to enter a comment

Project description


This package installs a JavaScript handler (using jQuery) that will present a prompt box inviting the user to enter a comment before triggering a workflow transition from the ‘state’ drop-down in a standard Plone site.

The handler will only be used for workflow actions using the standard content_status_modify script.

You can restrict this behaviour on some transitions through a control panel.

You can make the comment required or not.


If enabled, you’ll see a popup as shown below when initiating a workflow transition.
