Changing the Workflow State of Multiple Content Items
2 minute read
You can perform any workflow-state-specific actions on multiple content items that are in the same workflow state. For example, you can publish or reject multiple content items in the Reviewing Translated Version workflow state. Different actions are available, depending on the workflow state, as described in Changing the Workflow State of Individual Content Items.
To change the workflow state of multiple content items:
Ensure that the section for the workflow to which the content item is assigned is displayed in the Workbox. If it is not displayed, select the corresponding check box in the Workflows section of the Workbox ribbon. For details, see Displaying Content Items in the Workbox.
Ensure that the section for the workflow to which the content item is assigned is expanded. If it is not expanded, click to expand it.
Ensure that the section for the workflow-state section to which the content item is assigned is expanded. If it is not expanded, click , or click the title of the section, which is the name of the workflow state, to expand it.
