Need help with workflow

Question asked by vasuki on Sep 21, 2007
We are evaluating Alfresco for managing our website content. So, please excuse me if there are too many "newbie" questions…

I am trying to create the following "workflow" process:
I have two Spaces (let's say "DEV", "PRO"). If a user creates or updates a document somewhere in "DEV" (could be at any folder depth), the user should be able to click on "Submit to production", and this should copy the file to the exact same location under "PRO" (recreating the folder structure if necessary). Is this possible with Alfresco out-of-the-box?

I looked at the "simple workflow" for approve/reject - this seems to come close to what I want, but there are two problems:
1. It doesn't copy the folder structure - only the file gets copies to PRO.
2. It doesn't allow repeated pushes - once the file is sent to PRO, future updates cannot be sent, due to filenaming conflicts.

Thanks in advance for any help/guidance…
