What Workbench in Core Means for Editors and Site Builders

Ken Rickard - Director of Professional Services, Palantir.net

The Workbench module suite is a key component to most Drupal 7 web sites. Providing revision management, personal editorial workspaces, and editorial access groups, the module suite provides a unified solution to common problems. Workbench was so popular in Drupal 7 that Acquia helped move it to Drupal 8 as part of the Module Acceleration Program. And now, Workbench Moderation is in Drupal 8.2 core as Content Moderation.

In this webinar, we'll walk through the state of the modules in Drupal 8, discuss the development roadmap, and show you how your projects can leverage Workbench now. Topics covered will include:

  • The origins and goals of the module suite
  • Feature sets of the modules, with use-cases
  • Live demo of configuration options and typical uses
  • The future roadmap for Workbench Moderation now that Content Moderation is in core
