Select the Approval Process tab from the top Guide Edit menu.
  • Select the Approval Process tab from the top Guide Edit menu.

    • Only site Administrators have access to this tab.

  • By default, you have the option to assign separate Approval Processes to each Major Releases and Minor Releases of a guide.

  • If you don't need this amount of flexibility for your document control, you can choose to deactivate the "Minor Release" option from your site by contacting Dozuki Support.

Add Comment

  • Click in the Major Release Approval Process field and begin typing in the name of the Approvals Process that you'd like to assign for each version type.

  • Select the correct Process from the available options provided.

  • Repeat the above steps for the Minor Release Approval Process.

Add Comment

  • The ability to assign two different Approvals Processes to your guide based on the type of release published gives you flexibility in your document control.

  • Strict Control: Assign the same Approval Process to both Release types

    • This means the new release will ALWAYS go through the same Approval Process, no matter which release type an Author chooses to publish.

  • Conditional Control: Assign different Approval Processes to each release type.

    • This means the new release will go through a different process, depending on which release type the Author chooses to publish.

  • Flexible Control: Assign an Approval Process to Major Releases but not Minor Releases

    • This means that you are giving your Authors the ability to publish Minor Releases of this guide without sending it through an Approval Process first.
