Setting Up and Using Content Library Moderation

Overview

Content Library moderation allows you to review and organize Q&A pairs in the Answer Library and Documents in the Document Library prior to adding them to your library.  When moderation is enabled, content that is translated, added from projects, or edited from the library is sent for moderation. This ensures your content is consistent, accurate, and clean, giving more confidence to your users.

Q&A pairs are sent for moderation only after a project is marked as complete.

Both Answer Library and Document Library moderation are disabled by default; you must follow the steps in this article to enable it before use.

  • Q&A pairs can be added from projects or directly into the Content Library.
  • For moderation in projects:
    • Questions and answers will be sent for moderation only after a project is marked as complete.
    • When the Content Library content edited is sent for moderation, and a copy of the old content is retained in the Content Library, the edit icon appears grayed out. Owners/admins (with access to edit all content), will see an Edit icon. Clicking on this allows for editing the content that is currently in the review page. However, content in the Content Library remains non-editable.
    • For Document moderation, when project documents are copied to the Content Library, they are added to the Moderation queue. Once the document is accepted from the Moderation queue, it is added to the Content Library; if rejected it will be sent to the Trash.

Be aware that changing moderation settings can cause legacy Q&A pairs/Documents in moderation to operate on the prior settings until they are cleared out. Further, true duplicates may show up in this process; they may appear to be the same but there is actually an entirely separate Q&A pair/Documents. These can be quickly deleted or merged from the duplicate report function.

For a visual guide, refer to the Academy course on Moderation.

Permissions

You must have at least Moderate My permission to access the Moderation tab in the Content Library. Only Admin users can enable and disable Moderation.

Select the applicable tab for your edition of Responsive.

      • Choose Retain copy of original responses in the Answer Library and move edited responses to the moderation queue if you want to retain the old version in the Content Library so it can can be used in a project while the new version is being edited in moderation.
        • When edited content is sent for moderation, and a copy of the old content is retained in the Content Library, the No_Edit_Pencil.png icon will appear. Owners/admins (with access to edit all content), will see the mceclip0.png  icon. Clicking on this allows for editing the content that is currently in the review page. However, content in the Content Library will remain uneditable.
        • The old Q&A pair will be updated to the new version once it has been approved through the moderation process. The original copy will then be removed from the Content Library.
      • Choose Remove edited Q&A pairs from Answer Library and move them for moderation if you want the old version removed from the Content Library until moderation is completed, preventing it from being used while the new version is being moderated.
        Note: This is a specific use case for content that must be updated before it is used in a project to ensure complete accuracy of each and every edit before approving it and pushing it back into the Content Library.
