15:30 - 16:00 D8 Needs a Better Editorial Workflow in Core

Centennial Suite

This session focuses on the gaps with the existing workflow around publishing content. Be it the new user or an existing one, they have their own share of issues. It is against the new users’ mental model that “Save” publishes content. But concerns go beyond “Save” and “Publish”. At such instances, the argument about having support revision for different states always comes up. Drupal allows only for a binary publication state and associates this state with the entire node, making even simple content moderation workflows difficult to implement. As we move forward for D8, issues like these need to be addressed to improve the overall user experience.

Proposed solution: 

- Design for the 80% use case and how?

- Explore options for a more robust approach that does support workflow states, transitions and the UI elements.
