Icon-note.png Please note
This extension - and therefore also its functionalities - is not included anymore since BlueSpice version 2.27.0. Due to this, the article has been archived.

An article can be assigned to one or more responsible editors.  The editors responsible for an article can be seen in the status list of the article. When the menu is collapsed, only one of them will be displayed.

Technical background

Only those users with the relevant permission, responsibleeditors-takeresponsibility, in the namespace can be chosen as responsible editors.

To assign responsibility for an article to an editor, the user has to have the permission responsibleeditors-changeresponsibility or already have been named as a responsible editor him or herself.

Where can I find the function ResponsibleEditors?

The functionality of ResponisbleEditors

Who is the editor responsible for an article?

When an editor is responsible for an article, this will be displayed as article information in the StateBar whether it is displayed in full or collapsed. Clicking on the editor's name takes you to his or her user page.

Tips for working with ResponsibleEditors

  • The transparency of responsibility is particularly important in business, as clearly defined personal responsibility is required for process orientation.
