TKB Workflow Buttons

Hi all,

I am just working to implement TKB in our community. This is new for me, but I am rather confused by the workflow buttons that our authors are seeing. All of the buttons seem to behave the same so I am not sure what I am missing. 

They all send the article to the drafts tab, visible by the publisher, and appear to be ready for publishing.

  • Save & Request Publication What is the difference between Request Review?
  • Request ReviewWhat is the difference between Save & Request Publication?
  • Save—I would assume a TKB author could just click Save and it would save the article in their own drafts. However, as a publisher, I am also seeing all of these drafts in the drafts tab. How do I know as a publisher when an article is actually ready for publication vs. the author just Saved to edit later? 

I appreciate any insight here!

Hi @jmuzzana: Can you check this Article.

Save: The article will be in the Draft version and you can able to find in the Knowledgebase Dashboard tab.

Request review: Save the current revision and alerts the community the article is ready for review.

Save and Request Publication: Few users mayn't have the ability to publish the article. So it will send a message to community members that an article is ready for publishing. So they will review it and make a call to publish or Deny the article.

Thanks! The issue I am seeing is that authors click "Save" to be able to finish or edit their draft later. However, as a Publisher, I see all drafts from all authors, even when they have not sent them to be reviewed or published yet. 

I am finding this very confusing. As a publisher, how can you easily tell if a draft is requested for review or publication vs. an author is just still working on the draft?

I would expect:

  • "Save" to only save the draft article in that specific author's Drafts tab, not in the Publisher's Draft tab yet
  • Once the author clicks "Request Review" or  "Save and Request Publication", the draft would display in the Publisher's draft tab

Is that not correct?

Hi @jmuzzana: As a Publisher role you can able to see all the drafts of the user by default.
