Working Copies … you never knew you needed them but you won’t want to live without them If you’ve used other CMS solutions, you most likely have encountered this common problem: If someone is already changing the portion of the site you need to modify as well, then you're stuck. You have to talk to your colleagues, asking them to revert their changes or wait until they've finished. With Scrivito Working Copies you and your team can all collaboratively edit the same website without the fear of impacting each edit. Just work as normal and combine changes, then go live. Learn more about working copies in our explainer video.
Collaborative editing - Scrivito to the rescue Scrivito has a matchless feature called working copies. It's one of Scrivito's key features that you'll never want to live without once you have gotten to know it. A working copy is a copy of the currently published content. So, when you start editing; you either start with a new working copy or you choose an already existing one. You can even invite other editors to collaborate on your working copy. So, one team of editors can work on the big relaunch for next year using the "Relaunch" working copy, while other editors fix typos or add new articles to the site – using their individual working copies –, even in sections the relaunch editors team is completely overhauling. The relaunch team can even get updates of the changed parts from the current site so they don't need to fix the same issues or import the new stuff. This is true collaboration amongst all the editors. If you've just been experimenting or think that it's better to start over again with a fresh working copy, simply delete your working copy, no matter how many changes you’ve made. So, someone new to the website can play with things without the fear of destroying the site.
Customizable permissions If you have a larger editorial team and would like to introduce an editor in chief who needs to approve of all changes, that’s no problem at all. Scrivito's flexible permission system allows you to do just that. Any editor may edit the site, but not everyone is permitted to publish these edits. Using permissions, you're able to ensure the integrity and consistent quality of your content. Permissions are available in our Team plan.
