8.8 Read confirmation

Namespaces can be configured so that a read confirmation is requested from users that assigned to a page when a page has a new version. A confirmation prompt will then appear for all assigned users.

Activating read confirmations

An administrator must enable read confirmations in the Namespace manager:

Namespace manager
Namespace manager

Confirmation requests

After a page revision, the read confirmation message box is displayed to the assigned users. After checking the "Yes, I have completely read this page" checkbox, the page will be marked as read by this user.

Read confirmations and page approvals

If the approval feature is activated in a namespace at the same time, the read confirmation is triggered when a new draft is created. This can be changed via server configuration so that the read confirmation is required after the draft page has been approved.
