Our clients often come to Drupal with expectations about the features of a content management system (CMS). In many cases, Drupal handles the features they expect. However, not all editorial tools are a part of Drupal Core, and Drupal has addressed these tools with various contributed modules. As a result, Drupal’s editorial space generally lacks a consistent workflow and interface.
Ideally suited to the needs of universities. Workbench incorporates contributed modules and has some new features of its own:
Hierarchical permission inheritance by “Sections” not just content types
Extensible workflow states
Single repository for media management
Modify live content without publishing changes immediately
Workbench provides a unified interface for managing content. In effect, Workbench hides Drupal from you and makes content management about your institution and your website, not about Drupal.
