What is guideline ownership?
By default, on the IWD Platform, a guideline can only be updated by...
- The user who created it = OWNER
- Users having the right to modify guidelines created by others = SUPER ADMINS
To allow you to work collaboratively on a guideline with colleagues who are not Super Admins, and enable multiple users to edit the guideline's content without duplicating it, it is possible to define more than one owner for a guideline.
Good to know
While the co-owners of a guideline all have the right to edit its content, they won't be able to work on the guideline at the same time.
Who can manage guideline ownership?
To be able to add or remove owners of a guideline, you must:
- Either be one of the current OWNERS
- Or have the right to modify guidelines created by others ie. have a SUPER ADMIN profile
