"Track Changes" Feature?

  • "Track Changes" Feature?
  • As a publisher we changes a lot of content which has to be reviewed, copy-edited, and approved before published.  Is there a way to have the CMS display changes made to a document and "Accepted or Rejected"?  Similar to MS-Word "Track Changes" or the Telerik RadEditor for "Track Changes"?  demos.telerik.com/.../defaultcs.aspx

    Without visual cues as to where the changes are we are going to have an unmanageable task reviewing content due to the volume changes that will occur on a daily basis.

    Hi,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    I found a way to enable the tracking changes feature. I am attaching a customized htmlfield which has RadEditor with enabled tracking changes. I am also attaching the htmlfield, you can see the javascript used in the template. To register it you need to add the attached template to your project and then register it in Settings -> Advanced ->Controls -> ViewMap -> Create new. Then just fill the form as in the screenshot

    After that you will need to edit the toolset and enable the buttons:http://screencast.com/t/BodYObOmVUA5


    <tool name="AcceptTrackChange" Text="Accept Track Change"/>
        <tool name="RejectTrackChange" Text="Reject Track Change"/>
        <tool name="AcceptAllTrackChanges" Text="Accept All Track Changes"/>
        <tool name="RejectAllTrackChanges" Text="Reject All Track Changes"/>
        <tool name="EnableTrackChangesOverride" Text="Enable Track Changes Override"/>

    There is another approach that you can use, customize workflow notifications to include changes in the email as described here:http://www.sitefinity.com/blogs/radoslav-georgievs-blog/2011/12/23/how_to_customize_sitefinity_workflow_notifications

    I hope this information will be helpful.

  • That's fantastic!  Will the new version 6.2 editor still support this functionality?
  • Hello,

    I am not aware of any plans to remove this functionality. There is another option to track changes - when comparing revision history version:http://screencast.com/t/atafAPiGl

    I think this will be helpful as well.
