I love the ability to create custom statuses (for posts). However, the ability to change the status of a post is limited to only those that can publish posts.
I work in an organization that has a 2 step post moderation process. The contributor submits the post to his/her manager for review and then our marketing department reviews and then publishes the post.
Neither the contributor or the manager can have publish permissions for posts. Because of this, they are not able to update the post status.
When the post is submitted for review, the manager receives the email notification. However, there is no method (except a manual email) for the second notification to marketing after the manager reviews it.
I was hoping that it could be accomplished with the post status since a change in post status can trigger an email.
Maybe there is something I'm missing ... I'm and not configuring EditFlow properly.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
