Description
When any liferay web content is in workflow, no user can see the changes (from Web content Display Portlet) happening during workflow execution. For example, let say 4 levels of workflow has been configured for some site. When any user creates any web content, it will start workflow and reach to each level. At each level, a user who is part of that level, may update web content and send it further. Any user can't see these intreme changes happening during workflow from Web Content Display Portlet.

Many time Business users who owns the content want to see on going changes done through workflow. Out of the box, Liferay will not provide this facility. This App will help to avoid this limitation. It comprises of EXT and one hook. This app provides dynamic mechanism which allow users to see on going changes during workflow execution by introducing special role. This role is declared in portal-ext.properties(included in EXT plugin) file as below.

role.to.see.pending.content=SHOW_PENDING_CONTENT_ROLE

So after deploying this app, you need to just create one regular role called 'SHOW_PENDING_CONTENT_ROLE' and assign it to user who wants to see on going changes. This way they can see on going changes without explicitly going to Control Panel
