Chipmunk’s Draft Workflow in action
Getting started with drafts
Switch between viewing an asset's draft history and the current revision with the button.
Select Create as draft in the modal when uploading new content to Chipmunk and a draft of the new content will appear in the Drafts tab. The draft will require approval before appearing in the collection(s) specified when creating the asset or as a revision to the specified asset.
Uploading a file when creating a draft is optional. A file can be uploaded later or replaced before the draft is approved. This is useful for requesting content.
You can optionally add up to 5 assignees to drafts you submit. Assignees will see the pending draft under My Drafts in the Drafts tab and will see the draft assignment in their activity feed on Home in addition to receiving a notification.
Click on Drafts in the sidebar on the left to view your team’s drafts.
You’ll see all open drafts that were submitted by or assigned to you.
Here, you’ll see all of your team’s drafts that are currently pending approval.
All of you team’s drafts that have been approved or rejected are here. You’ll also see drafts here that were closed automatically when a newer draft revision for the same asset was approved. Drafts that were closed but not approved can be resubmitted from here.
Editing open drafts
If edits need to be made to an open draft before it can be approved you can do so by heading into the draft.
Note: when viewing a draft revision to an existing asset, editing the title, description, tags, or collections it’s in will affect the live asset. More on updating assets.
If a draft was submitted without a file, you can upload one when viewing the draft by dragging it into the draft or browsing to the file.
Note: while you may submit a draft that does not yet have a file uploaded, and draft requires a file in order to be approved. More on creating drafts.
