00:00:05Oxygen Content Fusion is a flexible, intuitive collaboration platform designed to adapt to
00:00:11virtually any type of documentation workflow.
00:00:13It allows a Content Author to upload documents that need to be reviewed, while the Reviewer simply
00:00:19follows a link to access the documents in a browser where they can use a visual editor
00:00:25to review, add comments, or contribute changes.
00:00:29They can communicate with each other directly from the browser interface, and ultimately,
00:00:35the Content Author can use a built-in merge tool to automatically integrate the changes
00:00:40back into Oxygen XML Editor or Author.
00:00:43To demonstrate this feature, suppose that a Content Author named John has created a
00:00:49DITA project to produce product brochures for two mobile phones, the X1000 and X2000.
00:00:56Two topics in the project contain details about the two phone models and John wants
00:01:01a subject matter expert to review the specs to make sure they are accurate.
00:01:07The Oxygen Content Fusion Connector is already installed on John's computer, so he displays
00:01:13it by clicking this button.
00:01:15John uses the Content Fusion Tasks Manager view to create a task by simply dragging the
00:01:20two files and dropping them in the New Task box.
00:01:24This begins the new task creation process.
00:01:27Since John is working with a DITA project, he wants to specify a Context DITA Map so
00:01:32that all references and defined keys can be resolved properly.
00:01:37Notice that the root map specified in the DITA Maps Manager is automatically chosen
00:01:41for the context map.
00:01:43Next, John adds a description of the task in the Summary field.
00:01:49This summary will help you differentiate between multiple tasks
00:01:52so each description should be a meaningful one.
00:01:55Then he clicks the Upload button to save the task on the
00:01:59Oxygen Content Fusion server.
00:02:01Then John simply clicks the link in that particular task box to open
00:02:06the Content Fusion interface in his default browser and the details
00:02:09for that task are displayed.
00:02:12Next, John clicks the Share button, then the Copy icon...
00:02:16... and shares this link with Mary, the subject matter expert that
00:02:23he wants to look at the documents.
00:02:25From Mary's perspective, when she receives John's message, all she needs to do is click
00:02:30the link he sent her to access the task in her browser.
00:02:35She clicks the X1000 file to open it in a visual editor where she can proofread, add
00:02:42comments, and make changes.
00:02:44She notices some specification that are wrong, so she changes them.
00:02:56Then, she decides to add a comment to let John know that he needs to ask another expert to
00:03:01look at the camera section.
00:03:04The file is automatically saved whenever a change is made...
00:03:08So she can simply move on to the next file she needs to review.
00:03:12She clicks the X2000 file.
00:03:14Again, she notices a few specs she wants so change
00:03:21Now Mary is finished, so she wants to let John know that she is done reviewing and changing
00:03:26all files.
00:03:28To do this she simply clicks the FINALIZE REVIEW button.
00:03:34Back to John.... he continued to work while Mary was reviewing the files,
00:03:39and in the Tasks Manager view he notices that the task has some notifications
00:03:44that there is a new message and some file changes.
00:03:49He wants to see progress of the review process so he clicks on the task to navigate back to
00:03:54the task details page in his browser.
00:03:57John sees that Mary is finished reviewing all files so now he wants to pull the changes
00:04:02back into the original files.
00:04:05Back in the Task Manager view, he clicks the "Get Changes" link.
00:04:11This opens a built-in tool that compares the files and presents the changes.
00:04:16Notice that the tool selects the most appropriate action for each file.
00:04:21John is happy with the changes and he just wants to integrate them, so he clicks "Apply" to
00:04:27automatically merge the changes back into his project.
00:04:31Notice that all of Mary's changes were merged and now he can see them in the original documents
00:04:37and since the changes were tracked, he can choose to accept or reject each one.
00:04:45This is just a small glimpse of the Oxygen Content Fusion platform and a very simple
00:04:49use-case.
00:04:50It was designed to accommodate any type of documentation review workflow
00:04:55and it is able to work with various documentation frameworks such as
00:04:59DITA, DocBook, TEI or XHTML.

00:05:07And this concludes our demonstration.
00:05:09Thanks for watching.
