4 Page assignments

Articles can have assigned users. Users receive a notification when their page assignments change. A special page lists all assignments in the knowledge base.

4.1. Assigning an article

To assign users to an article:

  1. Click Set page assignments in the page tools.
  2. Type a user name in the text field of the Assignments dialog.
  3. Add additional users (optional).
  4. Click the Done button.

Although users with view-only permissions can be assigned to an article, they cannot make changes to the page.

4.2. My assignments

Users can view their own page assignments by clicking on User menu > Personal Tools > Assignments in their personal menu.
