Content states

As an item moves through the publication process, Brightspot assigns it different states, such as draft, live, and archived. This section explains in detail how an item moves from one state to another.

Progression of an item through states

When you open an item in the content edit page, you can perform a variety of actions. Each action transitions the item to a different state as summarized in the following diagram.

Both the states and associated available actions appear in the Editorial toolbar (and in other places throughout Brightspot).
