I have the 30 day trial of Contribute loaded on two computers
so I can test it and we don't seem to be able to use the draft
function at all. I have one administrator and one user with the
role of writer. When the writer sends a draft for review, the
dialog box appears, I can select the administrator and it seems to
work just fine. However, after that - nothing. The draft console
for the user still shows the draft under "drafts I'm editing" and
not as "sent drafts" and for the administrator, nothing shows at
all - no drafts to edit.
This is getting frustrating, I can't buy it if I can't get
this part to work. Could it be a server permissions issue with the
_mm folder on the server? The logon with the writer role does have
read/write permissions to the site on the server, including that
Hrmmmm. Contribute CS4 free test download on one machine and
an owned full CS3 Contribute version on another for precisely the
expressed testing purposes as above.
On CS4 machine with "Writer" role the "Send For Review"
button only attaches a link to an email. No other options in
"File>Actions>etc" or anywhere else to enable the review
process. Drafts are essentially stuck in the CS4 review pool and
not shared with the admin user on the CS3 machine.
Permissions on the "_mm" folder are set at 755.
Going to dump the whole _mm folder and rebuild with the CS4
version and see what that does.
