    Package Installation - Plumber (workflow)

    I'm struggling to install my first package (new to Umbraco, week 3). I'm using Umbraco 7.7.4 and want to evaluate the Plumber workflow for approval before publish.

    On successful installation (Umbraco seems happy) I've restarted the AppPool, logged back in but can't find the Workflow tab (LHS) that should now be there.

    I've tried this in Visual Studio and also installing Umbraco into IIS8 on a server - I get the same experience.

    What can I do to narrow the problem down? Is it my install or the package or user error?

    Thanks for any help you can give.

    Hi Will

    Welcome to our forum!!!

    Please, go to Users section -> select your user -> check that you have access to that tab. Often, users don't have access to newly created tabs.

    You're right, my user has no access to the new Section/Tab (Workflow). But.... I can't see any reference to it under Users or Groups....

    Under Content there is a new Tab section but that doesn't do much for me... no setup of workflow there.... It feels like only half the package is installed.... Any ideas?

    Thanks.

    Also, maybe changes to /config/Dashboard.config wasn't applied during installation.

    This looks like what I expected to see...

    <section alias="WorkflowDashboardSection">
        <areas>
          <area>workflow</area>
        </areas>
        <tab caption="Overview">
          <control>/app_plugins/workflow/backoffice/views/workflow.admindashboard.html</control>
        </tab>
        <tab caption="Documentation">
          <control>/app_plugins/workflow/backoffice/views/workflow.docsdashboard.html</control>
        </tab>
      </section>
    

    Anything in Umbraco that can block new tabs?

    What should I be calling these (the LHS icons to new functionality)? Tabs? Sections? Areas?

    Thanks again.

    OK, got it. Confession time:

    As a new user I didn't twig I had to create a new Group with access to this section. Then, simply apply that group to users.... D'Oh

    So, if I'd understood a little more, your first comment was the right answer.

    Thank you for your help.
