Workflows app


NOTE: The Workflows app is only available on our Premium plan. If you would like to learn more or upgrade, visit our page on pricing plans.

If your version of Workflows was configured to your space prior to March 1st, 2023, and would like to migrate to this new app version, follow our migration guide.

The Workflows app allows you and your team to automate the process of monitoring the different stages of your content creation through notifications and tasks. In order to use Workflows, you must download the app, which can be installed by an admin or space manager here.

Once installing the Workflows app, you can configure one or multiple workflows and take your entries through different editing processes. Configuring Workflows to the entry sidebar allows you to view the status and history of changes through the dedicated Workflow.
