Request and Review Revisions

For HTML-based content types (e.g. Blog Posts, Articles, Press Releases, etc.) a Kapost Contributor or Editor often creates a piece of content and submits it.

After they've checked off their workflow task as complete, or clicked the Submit button if that's turned on their instance, an Editor or Admin can review the content and then send their notes to the writer via the Request Revisions button.

When Request Revisions is clicked by an Admin or Editor, the content is un-submitted, or marked as needing additional work before completion.

When content is un-submitted, the checkbox next to the Submit task is unchecked and, if it's turned on in the Kapost instance, the Submit button reappears above the text (the Contributor author then has the option to un-submit themselves after submitting by clicking the un-submit button; it is in the same spot where the Submit button was before they submitted).

When an Editor clicks Request Revisions they have the option to add a comment to add notes or context to the updates needed.

When the Revision Request is sent, the author is notified. The author of the post can then hit View Revisions under the More drop-down menu. Editors can also view past revisions using this menu. 


Reviewing Revisions

A pop up will appear and additions on the content will be shown in green, while copy removed will show in red.

The View Revisions feature can be used as a track-changes tool. A new revision is triggered every time you manually click the save button. If a new person starts editing your content, a new revision version will be triggered.  

You can choose to view the revisions or hide the revisions. If you wish to revert to a previous revision, click on the version you'd like to revert to and select, Revert to this revision.


Revisions for video and document content types are different than the above revisions. For these content type bodies, Kapost will show the different uploaded versions.

You can hit the X to remove to revision or click View to look at previous revisions. When you publish through Kapost you always would publish the latest most updated version.
