Feature Summary

Improvements to Search Mode

Workflow User Access Right

A new Workflow User Access right has been added to the Action > Manage Users screen


When the new workflow option is ticked for a user, they will be granted admin access to the workflow functionality, removing the need for general admin access rights. 

When a user is granted workflow access rights, they can see all the workflow items in the “All users” of the workflow list.
