Drupal Workbench ModuleWe're pleased to launch our 13th full Drupal class: Workbench.

Workbench is a whole suite of modules that introduces improvements to the way content is managed in Drupal.

Workbench provides a single user interface for users who only need to work with content. It adds usability improvements so that there's no need to "learn Drupal". It allows you to set editor permissions based on your organization's structure, not your website's.

Workbench allows you to create many different editorial workflows. For example, you can allow users to create content, but not publish it. You could also allow some other users to review content and decide whether it needs an additional revision, or that it is ready to be published.

This class is taught by the wonderful Brian Lewis from Modules Unraveled. If you haven't listened yet, check out his highly useful podcasts on things happening in the Drupal world.
