Better Workflow Functionality Wishlist

I am not a current Better Workflow, but I'm very interested. Unfortunately I have some requirements that it doesn't look like you support yet..

Custom Statuses - I really need to be able to use a "public" and "member" status on entries
Safecracker - I need the ability for a local director to be able to save a revised version of their page from the frontend and submit it for approval

I'm unclear if Better Workflow has this functionality yet or not:
Notifications sent to publisher when there are entries submitted for approval.

Promising addon, I hope my chance to implement it isn't too far off in the future.

    Hi Jules,

    Thanks for your email. Going through your wishlist:

    Custom Statuses: It is not possible to use custom statuses with BWF - this is something we hope to enable in the future

    Safecracker: This is not officially supported, some users have managed to submit new entries via Safecracker but not updating a live-draft. Again we do intend to look at this in the new year.

    Notifications: Yes, BWF sends out notification emails to an assigned member group when an entry is submitted for approval.

    I'm sorry we can't meet more of your needs right now. I hope BWF will still prove to be a useful add-on.

    Best wishes,

    Hey Malcom

    Thanks for the response. The custom statuses is a deal breaker on this particular project, but BWF is still very appealing, I will keep it in mind for other projects and maybe in the future I'll be able to use it for this project.

    Thanks for your reply, sorry we can't find a solution this time.

    You could try Publisher: - I think this allows you to use your own statuses.

    Best wishes,
