Can I collaborate with other users on content?

Content Collaboration

Colleagues can share and collaborate on all Simpplr content inside the app. This includes collaboration on:

  • Pages
  • Albums
  • Events

A collaborator can be any user with edit and publish permissions on a site: App manager, Site owner, Site manager, and Content manager. These users can edit any site content (even at the draft stage).

To begin content collaboration, open the content’s edit window to create a draft, or simply create a new piece of content. There can't be multiple users editing the content at the same time. If another collaborator clicks Edit while a user is already editing the content, they’ll be notified that changes are already in progress.




If a user is inactive for 30 minutes while editing, their edit window will automatically close, any unsaved changes will be lost, and the content can be edited by other users.


Version history

Saving or updating your content changes will create a new version. This includes both draft and saved content. Open the ellipsis (...) and click Version history to see all versions.  



Click on a version’s eye icon to view it.  


If you want to restore a particular version, open it and click Restore this version next to Edit. Doing so will create a new version with the restored version. 




Change content author

All users with edit and publish permissions, including site Content managers, can change the content author when the content is published, and while the content is still in draft.

  • Hi, Matthew!

    How can I share a draft page with a company leader for review without giving them Content Manager permissions? I just want them to review and approve a mostly finished page, I don't want them involved in the site administration...

    What's the best approach for that? We have created an unlisted, private Sandbox site and will add and remove folks to that as needed, but I don't know if that's the best approach? Maybe there's an easier way!

    Evidently we have a sandbox from our implementation, but I have never been able to get into it. My regular Simpplr name and password don't work and if I try to reset it, it never comes to my inbox. Maybe that's what I should be using instead?

  • Hi Linda. Unfortunately there's no great way to do this within Simpplr. I would suggest your best option is to copy & paste your content to a Google Doc. Share the doc with any partiers that need to give feedback, then after their review, just make your changes in the Simpplr version.
