I'm attempting to standardize documentation by using a template. I also need to apply a simple Comala workflow of Draft, Ready, Approved. How, if it's possible, do I add a workflow to a template page but not applied space wide?
I think you can do two things here:
Hope this helps!
The Comala workflows are set up on a space by space basis. So if you open a new page (template or not) it will have the workflow applied in any space that you have set up the workflow. If the same template is open in a space without workflow, obviously it will not be applied.
I don't believe you can restrict the workflow to a template or page. I believe it is only by space. I'm curious why you would want to do this. If there is content that does not require workflow, maybe it belongs in a different space from the content that you want to go through workflow.
I was hoping there was a way to apply it to a template so that if a user chose a specific template the workflow would be applied but if they chose another, it wouldn't.
The use case is this: The Site houses project management documentation, project status report pages, and best practice guidelines that do not require authorization for posting. We would like to include an Retrospective/Accomplishments page where staff can submit their project experiences as a descendant page. Management wishes to include a content approval process (Comala) before officially posting these submissions. The template is being used to standardize the format of the submission as they could come from various users throughout the company.
Use a label. This works for user-defined templates but unfortunately not for blueprints. For blueprints, you can only click on "Attach Workflow" to enable some pre-defined workflow for that blueprint supplied by Comala.
For your own templates, simply add a label to the template itself and configure your custom workflow to be applied wherever that label is found. Like this:
In the above, any page will have the workflow applied if it has that label or was created from a user template that has it.
