My Workbench is the primary UI (user interface) for website authors and publishers. It provides a user-centric view to content and tasks. In the Author Toolbar, you will find a link to My Workbench to the right of the Home icon.
Beneath the toolbar, you will see navigation tabs of the primary areas in the workbench.
Under the My Content tab, you will see three areas:
My Profile - This area is provides a link to your profile page, where you change your password or other user configuration settings.
Content I've Edited - This is your content dashboard. When you add or edit content, it will be displayed in this block.
All Recent Content - This is where you will find content written by yourself as well as other members of your team (or more specifically, other people who are assigned to the same editorial sections as you).
By default, the "Content I've Edited" and "All Recent Content" blocks will show only the most recent edits. If you'd like to view more, you can select the view all link at the bottom of either table. If the View All page shows too much, you can filter the results by title, type, published state or section(s).
Under the Create Content tab, you can view a list of content types that you can create. Selecting the content type link begins the content creation process.
Under the File List tab, you can view a list of graphics that have been uploaded to the Media directory.
Under the My Sections tab, you can view a list of the editorial sections (departments) to which you’ve been assigned.
Under the My Drafts tab, you can view a detailed list of content that is in the draft state that you've edited. From this view, you can view the moderation history or change the moderation state of the content.
If you have publishing rights, you will also have a Needs Review tab. Here you can view a list of content that members of your team have moderated to a needs review state. You can click to review and/or edit the content, moderate the content to a published state or even moderate it back to a draft state for additional editing.
