Workflows page

The Workflows feature allows you to create custom workflow states and assign them to your entries. Workflow states help you keep track of stages of your content creation within your environment.

The Workflows page in Launch allows you to view a list of entries and filter them per workflow state. You can also access each entry directly from this list to update its workflow state.

How many workflows can I create?

At present, Launch only supports the creation of a single workflow for each environment and up to 10 workflow states in a workflow.

Also, one content type can only be assigned with one workflow.
