Sitecore Workflow Best Practices


# Practice Rationale
1. Configure proper role-based access to workflow actions and states Leaving workflows actions exposed will allow content authors to skips steps; there is a high chance of this happening in times of stress.
2. Avoid setting up default publishing email notifications Email notifications may result in email floods and get ignored.
3. Create a user role capable of overriding publishing workflows It is likely there will be content edits that cannot wait till the next scheduled publish to be released; creating a group that has the rights to override the publishing workflow will make that possible (make sure this privilege is not abused).
