We need to create an editorial process for our site, which can seem complex at first. We need to provide some form of access control, so that editors who are responsible for the “culture” section on the site can only see draft articles in that particular section. On top of that, we need an editorial workflow that integrates with that access control feature so the editors can control which content is in which state at any given time. Lucky for us, Workbench provides exactly what we need. In this lesson we'll get an overview of what comes in the Workbench project and get a look at the main My Workbench page.
