A specific platform configuration can activate an editorial versioning and approval workflow.
When this feature is enabled, if the the Vendor makes changes on the editorial descriptions of a product / plan, the platform creates a draft that needs to be approved by the Admin in order to become effective (really published on a marketplace).
The Vendor can request the Admin to review (and possibly approve) his draft by clicking on a "request review" button. Once done, the Admin will receive an email notification.
The platform provides the Admin with a view listing all the "pending drafts". By clicking on one of them, a comparison view is provided, to empathize the differences between the previous contents and their latest versions.
While a draft is under approval by the Admin, the Vendor can still update his draft, the new modifications will substitute the previous ones on the "current draft".
When the Admin approves a draft:
- the vendor receives an email notification ("your draft is now approved")
- if the draft refers to an unpublished plan, the platform automatically publish it
- if the draft refers to main product descriptions (not directly related to plans), the changes are published on the marketplaces only if the product was already visible
