Document and Workflow History
By Kyle Hatlestad on Nov 01, 2010
While the reports help gather information for broad queries such as by workflow name, metadata, or time, it's not good at generating ad-hoc reports for individual items. You can create a report that is scoped to a specific Content ID, but that has to be done each time through the Web Layout Editor.
Since quickly getting the document or workflow history for an individual is a pretty handy thing to have, I created a couple of pre-built reports that can take the Content ID as a parameter when called. I then modified a resource include used on the Content Information page to include links to both reports for that content.
Then when you click the 'History' link, you get the check in, update, revisions, & delete history report:
And when clicking the 'Workflow' link, you get the workflow review steps the document went through before being released:
I've uploaded a copy of thesample. Because this includes some pre-built reports along with a custom component, it's packaged as a Configuration Migration Utility bundle. You'll want to upload the bundle, import it, and then enable the 'WorkflowReport' component.
