Permission issue with Noticeboard News for co-editor
When a user creates a Noticeboard News item and sets the publishing date to a future date, then shares the News link to a co-editor for review, there is an issue with the co-editor being unable to view the News item. The co-editor has write permissions to the channel and the channel is configured with "Can only edit its own" unchecked (see screenshot).
Only the News item creator, a Noticeboard Admin or a Wizdom Admin, is able to see Noticeboard News items that have not been published yet, no matter if the 'Can only edit its own' value is ticked or not.
When the item has been published, the Alternate Author has edit permissions to the item as well.
If you have a broad team of publishers, then you can consider giving that group Noticeboard Admin permissions - then the possibility to edit all items is still present.
I can confirm that we have this issue and have tried to use the alternate author option, but it doesn't work. I believe it might be fixed in a recent update.0
Hi James Mullan thanks for raising this and trying the alternate author option. I've gone ahead and created a support ticket for this issue for you. Cheers0
I am interested to know whether this has indeed been updated as i have a news team that want to view each others noticeboard news as part of check process before it is published. I have been unable to do this.
Currently using a work around where I have created a channel called Drafts that only the news team have access to. When they are then ready to publish/schedule then they assign it to the correct channel and remove from drafts.
Not as slick as I would like so if the above has been solved it would be good to know, cheers0
