Hello and thanks for your interest. In this tutorial, we will cover the new Content Workflow and how is it different from Amplifr you know and love.
You can create a new post using one of the “Drafts”, “New post” or “Posts” menu items. After the author proceeds with the “Request approve” button, the post moves to the “Discussions” page.
If the author did not mark the post as a Draft when creating via the “New post” or “Posts” menu item, it goes straight to the approval stage.
On the “Discussions” page, the client can only leave comments for the post, while post authors can comment and edit the post on the same screen. The history of post changes is visible in the comments section. Once the client chooses to “Approve” the post, it becomes available on the Posts page.
For any post that is scheduled (visible at the “Posts” page), the client can choose to return it to the discussion and postpone the publication: the post should be reviewed and approved before it gets scheduled for release again.
The project owner is still the administrator of the account — he can manage project settings, users, and billing. When it comes to Content Workflow, he has the same access rights as the editor.

We are working on a Settings page for Workflow email notifications — please stay tuned!
At the moment, you can just visit the Workflow page or refresh it in your browser. We will have email notifications working real soon — please stay tuned.
What will happen is that the project owner and project editors will lose the ability to schedule posts all by themselves. Instead, only the posts that were approved by the client will make the schedule.
To figure out if you like the new Content Workflow, you can create a test project to play around. Just contact our support with the project name — we will enable the Content Workflow for that project and make sure that we will not charge you for that project for the time being.
If you are sure that the Content Workflow product is not something that matches your particular workflow, just contact us, and we will disable it for your project.
