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.
Is it possible to Ghost Write for the home page?
What area of the homepage are you referring to? Please share a screenshot. Feel free to create a private case here if the homepage contains sensitive information.
By home page, I meant I just want to place an Article to the Top Level Community via content list widget (page builder) and I want that article to be written by somebody else.
Yes, you can enable ghostwriting in the top level community. Go to Control Panel > System > System Properties, search for GhostwritingEnabled, and set it to true. Then update article permissions in Control Panel > Content > Articles > Permissions. Check the Select Author permission for the roles that can ghostwrite content, and save permissions. You can also create new roles in Control Panel > People > Roles > Add User Role .
Hi, is it possible to 'Ghostwrite' events and idea content types in the Top Level Community? I've got it enabled but don't see the option when I go into the permissions for that content type.
Hi Ian, It is only possible to ghostwrite for Articles, Blogs, Videos, and Wikis. We do not support ghostwriting Events and Ideas. Foster
Will there be functionality added to ghostwrite photos? It would make sense since videos can be ghostwritten.
At the moment there is not a plan to add this functionality, however, I will discuss this with our team and see if it is something that can be added in a future version.
