When many people are involved in your site publication workflow, things can get complicated quickly. In this series, we’ll build out a full editorial workflow process for a new site.

In this lesson, we're going to look at the use case -- what is the project that we're building, and what are the requirements that we need to meet? Then we’ll discuss which contributed modules and aspects of the core we’ll use to meet the needs of our client in this use case. We’ll set up editorial teams so each team can work on its own section, and allow administrators to change the default publishing settings for each content type. We’ll use different parts of the Workbench module to help us ease this entire workflow that we need, and create roles and users who only have access to specific topics.
