A workflow manager for Plone

Project description

Workflow Manager

This package provides a GUI for creating and editing custom workflows in Plone.

Version 1.x is the original GUI, similar to what you would see in the Management Interface.

Version 2.x presents the workflow in the form of an interactive workflow diagram. This YouTube video shows how the diagram-centric UI works in workflow manager 2.x:


  • create/edit/delete new workflows

  • add content rule actions easily for a workflow transition

  • graphical representation of workflows

  • easily manipulate workflow permissions
