If another user has tagged you, made a comment on one of your actions or replied to one of your comments, you are notified of this in the user interface. The bell icon in the toolbar displays the number of new notifications you have.
Click the icon to display a list of notifications. From the notification list, you can go to the project overview to read the comment.
Adds a comment form to the project item activity feed. This allows messages to be created as part of the activity feed in order to facilitate collaboration on project items. Additionally, it is possible to reply to these messages or comment on other activities in the activity feed.
The project overview lets editors collaborate on a project. They can comment on project items from the Items tab and comment on the project itself or on project actions from the Project comments tab. Editors also can tag other users when commenting.
A tagged user receives an email with an excerpt of the comment and a link to the project. Users also receive emails if someone replies to their comments or comments on one of their project actions, and so on.
Projects lets editors work on multiple content items and release them at the same time, and increases content collaboration between editors by including a commenting and email notification feature.
Adds real time updates to the activities feed in the project overview so that new activities and associated comments are instantly shown without the need to refresh the view.
When you load the navigation or assets pane, the last selected tab is selected by default, as long as the same browser is used.
If the system goes into ReadOnly mode while an editor is working in edit view, the editor is redirected to a read-only page. See Database mode on how to provide your own customized read-only page.
The Episerver log-in screen, global menu and quick access menu have been rebranded.
Episerver CMS is now set up to display comments and changes to projects in the user interface immediately. When using the projects feature, the WebSocket protocol is used to check for new or updated comments and project items from other users. As soon as another user adds a comment or project item, Episerver automatically updates your user interface and displays the comment or item (assuming you have the projects interface open). Note: This feature is enabled by default and requires WebSocket support on the web server, see WebSocket Support in the CMS Developer Guide for more information.
