Authoring Workflow

workflow-no-numbers.jpg

The typical workflow for authoring in Paligo is:

  1. Create a publication. This represents the output you will create and you use it to build the structure, like a table of contents.

  2. Create topics. Each topic should cover one subject or task.

  3. Add elements and content in the topics. You use the elements to build the structure of a topic, and then add your content to them.

  4. Add the topics to the publication.

  5. Send for review.

  6. Send for translation (if applicable).

  7. Set up one or more Layouts. You use the Layout to define what type of output you want and what settings should be in place. For some outputs, such as PDF, you apply the styling directly in the Layout Editor options. For HTML outputs, it's a combination of options to set, as well as the possibility to upload and use custom CSS to style the content.

    More about this in Styling and Customizing your Outputs.

  8. When the content is approved, publish the publication.
