Enabling the EPiServer CMS Workflows
EPiServer CMS 5 ships with four out of the box workflows; Parallel Approval, Sequential Approval, Ready for Translation, and Request for Feedback.
The workflows are disabled by default and can easily be enabled for a CMS site by un-commenting their definitions in web.config.
If the workflows have not been enabled yet, you will see a “There are no instances or tasks related to this page available” message on the “Workflow” tab and a “There are no workflow definitions available” message in the Action Window in Edit Mode.
To enable the workflows…
Open web.config and uncomment the following snippet under configuration/episerver/workflowSettings/definitions:
Once enabled, the EPiServer workflows can be started from the “Workflow” tab or the “Action Window” in Edit Mode.
