You can publish content on behalf of other users. Once you publish the content, the other user appears as the author and receives notifications about activity on the content. The following content types can be ghostwritten:
Select a content type.
Select a space to post to.
Fill out the content.
In the author field, enter the user to post for. Start typing a name and select the user from the menu that appears.
If you Save as Draft , set the author to yourself for easy access to the draft. You can find your drafts in My Apps and Tools > My Content . Once you finish working on the content, set the author and publish the content.
To receive notifications about likes and comments on the content, click Follow Content .
Set to true.
For top level content, update the GhostwritingEnabled property in Control Panel > System > System Properties .
To allow users to ghostwrite content, go to Manage Space > Permissions. Check the Select Author permission for the role. Also check the Edit permission to allow the user to update content they ghostwrote.
For top level content, go to Control Panel > Content > select a content type > Permissions.
To see author history and who changed the content author, click the gear icon > View History . The Last updated by column shows who updated the content.
Are there any plans to add this functionality to Files?
There are no plans to add ghostwriting functionality for files.
Thanks, Grace. Will there be any other means of assigning a file to a new owner? For example:
Employee X uploads File 1 to Space A, but transfers out of the department (and Space A) and should no longer be responsible for for File 1; instead, we'd like Employee B to be the owner and get notifications, etc.
We don't have plans to add such functionality either. Users can Follow Content to get notifications about comments and updates to the content.
We don't see the System Properties option when going into Manage Spaces.
You will need to be updated to a newer version of Communifire in order to get the Ghost Writing capability. Please open a Private Case so that we can coordinate a time to get together to update your site.
