OOTB Announcements do not support workflows. This is not a question of using Spaces vs. WebCenter Portal app, but mainly, because Announcements do not support "states".1 person found this helpful
Even if you decide to customize it, it might be quite challenging. What you could try is:
- there is a parameter Make Active on Specific Date - you'd could assign a date in a far future and then change it in a workflow to the date of approval
- this chapter http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E21764_01/webcenter.1111/e10148/jpsdg_announce.htm#CACIFEDB mentions security for announcements - maybe you could somehow use it
I'd rather go a worklist as described in http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E21764_01/webcenter.1111/e10149/content_workflow.htm#WCSUG8483
If you really insist on Announcements, you could (auto-)create an Announcement (via calling the appropriate service) in the end of a successful worklist workflow.
Thanks Jiri for your kind information, it's quite helpful.
