Move an item through the workflow in Horizon

Abstract

How to change an item's workflow status in Horizon.

An item that is subject to a workflow must go through all the workflow's mandatory states before you can publish it.

In Pages and Content, you can see the current workflow state of the item in the right hand panel.

To move the item to the next workflow state:

  1. In the right hand panel, click the Workflow button to open the Workflow panel.

    In the Workflow panel, In the Action field, the next default state has been automatically selected. Depending on your workflow, you might be able to select another state from the drop-down menu in the Action field.

    The button in the Workflow panel changes name depending on the content of the Action field.
