So one thing I missed from my video was how to configure the roles for having access to various workflow states. You need to open the
Security Editor and make sure to select the correct role to edit.
In this case you will want to edit the
Content Editor role. You will need to do two things to ensure that the
Content Editor role can make changes.
You need to make sure the content in your tree has
Write Access for the correct role, in this case
Make sure that you give
Content Editor, the privilege to
Workflow State Write for the workflow state they should have access to.
If you don't see the column for Workflow State Write, you can click on the Columns button in the Security Editor, and then you can make changes to it's workflow state write.
One other thing to note about workflow, if you are adding it to an existing content tree, is that the items that were added before you added workflow, will not be assigned to the default state of workflow by default. If you would like to update your content, you can either do that manually, or you can use SPE to update the content.
You can also use the Access Viewer to view the changes you are making to confirm things have the correct access you are looking for. Or you can start an incognito window and login to a user's account that has the
Content Editors role assigned to it, so you can confirm they have the access you are looking for.
