Workflow editor

Created by c.neale, last modified by r.saunders on 22 Sep 2021

An editor which is displayed in the Contensis UI for a workflow event. 

Currently the only editor supported for use in workflow definitions is the multiline editor, which displays a customisable message to the user when the parent event is triggered to prompt the user to enter text, e.g. when submitting an entry for approval. This editor can be used in conjunction with the required validation to make entering text mandatory.
