Add ability for outside stakeholders to review drafts
Laura Joy Phillips
As part of our documentation workflow, we anticipate needing a way to receive feedback from and collaborate with people across our internal departments as well as external partners. The current features of discussions or notes within the editing platform are intended mostly for internal collaboration between writers and editors. What we're really looking for is a way to share an article while in draft form (perhaps via direct link) so that stakeholders can add comments on individual words/sentences/sections of the article. This would allow us to get feedback from key stakeholders for relevant articles without giving them full editorial access or responsibilities. For example, we might want to have a "new feature" article reviewed by the developer who created the feature, but we wouldn't necessarily want her to review everything else we're working on. In short, it would be great to have something like LinkedIn's ability to share drafts (linkedin.com/help/linkedin/answer/85039/share-a-draft-of-your-article-before-publishing?lang=en) but with a way for readers to add comments (as one would in Word or Google Docs).
