We’ve listened to your feedback and we’re pleased to announce that we have two new features for Channels editors.
Want to allow a certain group of people, or selected individuals to collaborate with you on your News, Events, and Announcement items? Now you can select them on all News, Events, and Announcements posting/editing forms. Just go to the last tab, labelled “Permissions”, and select the individuals or groups to whom you wish to give editing rights, using a tool similar to the channel selector. Note, that the people who appear in the list are only those who have News, Events, or Announcements posting rights themselves. You will also see a list of Active Directory groups to which you belong — you can assign item permissions to an AD group, not just individual people. Once the item is saved, it should show up in the “My Items” page for those who have access to it.
If you find that you are always choosing the same channels over and over, this feature is for you. It’s simple — just click the box beside “Make this my default selection” underneath the channel selector, and these channels will be selected by default on every new item you post. In addition, this feature is available for Permissions as well, so if you are collaborating on a regular basis with the same individuals or groups, you may want to save your preferences on the Permissions tab in the same way.
