I'm *completely* confused by the workshop activity and this setting. In moodle docs it says:
"The course facilitator can select some submissions and publish them so they are available to the others at the end of Workshop activity"
But no (clear) instructions how or where this is set.
"Your setup sounds correct (submissions/essays marked as to be published, the workshop closed)"
But again can't find where/how you set "essays marked to be published"?
EDIT: Have finally figured this out but took being logged in as a student to see the effects. Slightly surprised how much intervention seems to be needed e.g. starting and closing activity to release results. Lots of room to improve and clarify instructions, if/when I get time I'll try and do so.
