Setting Up the Group News Approver Workflow

You can define approver workflow processes for Group News content. The approver workflow process determines the way the Siebel application handles content associated with the workflow. Siebel Group News is preconfigured with a Group News workflow that has two approval levels. This workflow allows Siebel to automatically send content from the creator, to the first-level approver, then to the second-level approver, and finally to the appropriate page views for publishing. At each point in the workflow process the content can be modified or approved. Approver workflows streamline the approval process, helping news authors to publish time-sensitive content for immediate employee review.

You can use the preconfigured workflow titled Group News Approver Workflow or you can create a new workflow. For more information about workflow modification and creation, see Siebel Business Process Designer Administration Guide.
