As the Content Author, to create a new task, add files to it, and then upload the task to the Oxygen Content Fusion server, follow these steps:
  1. If the Content Fusion Tasks Manager view is not already opened, click the Show Content Fusion Task Manager toolbar button (or go to Window / Show View / Content Fusion Tasks Manager).
  2. Add files to the New Task box:

    You can use any of the following methods:
    • Drag files that you want to be reviewed from the Project view or your system file explorer and drop them in the New Task box (or click the choose link to select the files) to add the files to a new task. If you drag and drop a folder from the Project view or system file explorer, all files in that directory will be added to the task.
    • You can add the currently opened document to a task by selecting Add File to Review Task from the contextual menu in Author mode or Text mode.
    • You can also add external resources (for example, WebDAV resources or DITA references to external resources). For example, you can drag resources from the Data Source Explorer view and drop them in the New Task box. However, only modifications to external resources can be applied when you merge the changes (you cannot add or delete external resources).
    • Drag files from the DITA Maps Manager and drop them in the New Task box (or select Add to Review Task from the contextual menu in the DITA Maps Manager). If the topic reference has unselected child nodes, a dialog box will be displayed that asks you whether or not you want to include the child nodes.
      Note: By default, DITA resources that either have a processing-role attribute set to resource-only or a format attribute set to something other than dita or ditamap are automatically not added to a new task. If either one of these scenarios is detected, a message will be displayed indicating that some files were not added and you can click a link to open a Manage Files dialog box where you can see the reason each file was not automatically added and you can choose to manually add them to the new task.

  3. If you are working with a DITA project, you should attach the context root map so that all references and defined keys can be resolved and displayed properly for the Reviewers. If you added files to the task by dragging them from the DITA Maps Manager, the root map that is specified in the DITA Maps Manager is automatically added as the Context DITA Map, but you can also drag a DITA map file and drop it in the Context DITA Map section or click to the Choose Context Map button to select a map.

  4. Enter a description or title for the task in the Summary field. This task summary will help you differentiate between multiple tasks so each description should be unique.
  5. Click the Upload button to finish the task creation process and upload the information to the Oxygen Content Fusion server.
