    Answer Versioning


    Our team is preparing to upgrade to 18B, which features Answer Versioning.  We've seen the You Tube video tutorial so we have an idea of what is involved. However, many of our Answer reviewers are not OSvC users.  We are wondering if anyone has a solution for sending Answers to reviewers that are not OSvC users, while still maintaining the benefits of Answer Versioning?  Thanks!!  =]

      Hi kerry,

      I am not sure how that non user of OSvC will edit answers, however, I guess I have an idea to help you with showing answers to them before it is public.

      1. Create a new access level, let us call it Review.

      2. Create a SLA, let us call it 'Reviewer' and assign 'Review' access level to this SLA.

      3. Assign 'Review' access level to selected answers.

      4. Create contact for all reviewers, Now, either create a separate organization for all the reviewers and assign the 'Reviewer' SLA to it, or assign this SLA individually to all contact records for reviewers.

      This way, all the answers in access level 'Review' will be visible to 'Reviewers' only on the customer portal.

      Answer editing outside of OSC is not supported. However... you should be able to make something using the Customer Portal and Connect for PHP or the API's.

      Create, update, destroy are available so you can use that.

      *Just don't tell Oracle that you're doing this*
