Recommended Use
Open
A “dropbox” to which any user with feature level access may contribute content.
None
To enable all users to contribute without restriction.
Managed
Users can view but only those added to a given repository as Editors may add or edit content.
View-only access unless an editor is added to enable modification of content.
To restrict edit access to qualified individuals (copy editors) within a defined set of narrative sections. Ideal for:
  • teams working on various projects who want to maintain their own versions of narrative sections
  • small to mid-size teams that don’t need to restrict access to use, but want to limit curation to leadership
Private
A repository to store narrative sections not available unless a user is explicitly given read and/or edit permissions.
Users may be permitted view only (Viewer) or edit (Editor).
  • A place to copy manually created narrative sections (from a report) that may contain client-specific data that needs to be sanitized
  • A place to work on drafts for new narrative sections not ready for general use
  • A place to store final narrative sections not available for general use
