Yep - copy it from ~/lib/workflows/request/default.xml to  ~/archives/ARCHIVEID/cfg/workflow/request/default.xml restart apache (or reload config), follow the other instructions on the wiki page (adding to datasets etc.) and you're good to go!

Cheers,
John

Aha! Fabulous, thanks John! When tinkering in the workflow, if I don¹t
have a localised version of that workflow in my archive folder I presume
that if I copy it across it will look at that before it looks at the main
one?
