Workbench is a Drupal module that provides an interface for workflow and moderation of content. In the University’s standard Drupal installation, My Workbench will be the first item in the administrative menu.
My Workbench is an alternative way of accessing the content in your site. Instead of searching for content using Content in the administrative menu, My Workbench groups the content into tabs:
My Content -- your most recently created content
My Drafts -- content you’ve created that has the publishing actions set to Draft
Needs Review -- all content on your site that has the publishing actions set to Needs Review
There are two additional tabs:
Create Content -- an alternate view of the list of content types you can create
File List -- a way to interact with the files (images, sounds, PDFs, Word Documents, etc.) on your site.
