Request for review, list of reviews

Post by hordurj » Thu Oct 31, 2019 12:57 pm

When a document is edited in the WEB Author is it possible to have a notification sent out with a request for review?
Is it possible to get a list of documents that require review?

The WEB Author is setup with git backend.

Thanks,
Hordur

Hello,

If you are using a git hosting server such as GitHub, GitLab or BitBucket, such a "review request" maps perfectly with the "Pull Request" concept (or "Merge Request" for GitLab).

When a user commits a file, Web Author offers the choice to commit it on a new branch and automatically create a "Pull Request" [1]. When a "Pull Request" is created, the subscribed users will be notified [2]. There pull requests are also tracked by the Git hosting server and one can log in and see a list of them.

Best,
Cristian
