    The next big thing that we need
  • 0:12
    to do in our editorial process is work on access control.
  • 0:16
    We created a taxonomy earlier for the new Sections,
  • 0:19
    and now what we want to do is control
  • 0:21
    editorial access to those new Sections.
  • 0:24
    So we want to marry our taxonomy with Workbench Access module
  • 0:29
    so that we can control if an editor is part of the Cultural Section,
  • 0:33
    they should only see that content and be able to work
  • 0:35
    with that in the editorial process.

Spotlight: Workbench Access


The next step in our editorial workflow is to combine Workbench with our News Section vocabulary to allow content management to be delegated according to existing editorial groups. To do this we'll use the Workbench Access module, which is included in the Workbench package. In this lesson we'll review how Workbench Access integrates with various hierarchies, and understand what Sections are, and the setting we have available to us.
