Request Content Changes
For every catalog page, users have the ability to request changes, which can often be used if they are not given direct editing access. A catalog change request can be initiated one of two ways
From the home page, you can click the “Request Changes” button, which brings the user to a view where they can select a page for their request.
On the page editor for each page, there is a “Request” changes button that will initiate a request for that specific page.
Here is where you can find the "Request Changes" link on the home page:
Here is what the "Request Changes" link looks like on a specific page:
Both paths lead to the Catalog Request form, shown below:
The form has three inputs:
Reason for Request - please specify a reason that will be seen by all request approvers
Page Name - the requestor can modify the page name in the request if you like
Page Content - the requestor can modify all content of the page using the same editing functionality outlined in the “Editing A Page” overview.
There is also a “View Changes” button on the right, which will allow you to visualize all changes you have made before submitting the request. An example is shown here:
Once a request is submitted, all approvers will be notified. The request will show up in the request dashboard, which can be used to approve the request (for approvers) or review the status of the request (for the request authors). Shown below is an example request:
In the Requests dashboard, ‘Vote Required’ includes all requests where the user must cast a vote to move the request along the workflow. For all intents and purposes, this is where users should navigate to for their ‘action items’.
‘Assigned to Me’ shows requests that the user did not create where they have already voted, have yet to vote, or where they were intended to vote before someone else force approved (and the request was therefore entirely approved, therefore no longer requiring their vote). This tab is helpful, amongst other things, for record-keeping purposes, as it shows requests the user has already voted on.
‘Created by Me’ shows the same items as ‘Assigned to Me’, but in this case the requests was created by the user themself.
