Meet Sally – An employee with a problem Nobody outside her department uses the great documents she creates Nodoby outside her department don’t know how to do the stuff that Sally knows, so they do it their way. Most times, their way isn’t so great.
Meet the Team – they have a problem They spend too much time creating materials that Sally should be making for them They know their materials arent’ that good, but what choice do they have?
In fact, we ALL want access to that site Create groups of multiple users that are similar. Administrators control which users are in which group. Can also be used as email notification lists. A group is a collection of similar people.
We need some structure Policies replace default security settings. Defines read/write access for all Groups, including Public and Registered. Apply policies to specific pages using the Advanced tab of the editing screen. A policy says what people in groups can do in the site
Now, everyone can collaborate freely New pages can inherit security settings from the page last viewed. Enable Sticky Page Security in the Site Security settings screen. EditMe doesn’t use the concepts of folders or sections.
In Summary - You’ve got options With EditMe, your sites’ security starts with sensible defaults. Site-wide settings apply to most commonly needed configurations. Page-level over-rides handle exceptions. Groups & policies handle complex access control scenarios.
What is EditMe? Easiest way to create collaborative websites Use EditMe for business websites, private intranets, online communities, classroom sites, project team sites - just about any type of web site you need.
