    Is there a way to have Workflow setup to require the Editor role to seek approval, but give the Admin role (or say an Approver role) the standard "publish" button? 

    Basically I want to create a role that would have to use Workflow and a role that would not have to use Workflow.  Is that possible?

    Hello danfinney,

    Unfortunately this is not possible at the moment. We are preparing great improvements in area of workflow for Sitefinity 4.0. The feature you requested, as well as custom workflow paths and custom activities will be provided. We will also try to include an easy graphical interface for defining workflow.

    I am sorry that I was not able to help you more at this time. Let us know if there is anything else we can do for you.

    Best wishes,
    Ivan

    actually I found a nice little workaround, not sure if it will work for you, but in addition to the live site which is running with workflow enabled, I have my own copy of sitefinity running locally. On my local installation I disable workflow. Since they both connect to the same database, changes made locally get saved to the live site, but since I am admin, I can bypass the workflow entirely and just publish!

    great time saver :)
