User Workflow:

Currently our WP installation doesn’t provide sufficient user workflow. Most teams utilize two user types: Editors and Administrators, which both have the capability to publish content to a website. Often groups are making changes and publishing them live, and then other team members are double-checking and reviewing the changes on the live pages.

We’re looking for a workflow solution where a user group with limited access (e.g. a contributor or author) could add draft content to a site, and then it would go to an editor or administrator for review and publishing.

This workflow would be required both on new pages/posts that haven’t been published AND changes to existing pages/posts that are already live.

I believe this was investigation previously, but plugins such as Revisionize had bugs and issues.
