XML Form - Simple Question

I realise that this is probably very simple, but I am very new to this, so any assistance is much appreciated!

I have created an XML form for company news, and I would like to provide everyone with the ability to create a news item, which would then be submitted for approval.

Which iview do I use/create to point directly to the XML form that allows a user to create a new news item?

ie I want to put have a link "Submit a News Item" which will take the user straight through to the xml form where they can enter the details of the news item.

Thanks in advance for any assistance.

Regards

Richard

    Hi Richard

    You can create the XML form using the form Builder. Then you can create a KM navigation iview for displaying the news.You has to change the "path to initially displayed folder" in the property of the iview. Then in the "layout set" make as "NewsExplorer/NewsBrowser" for the admin and the user screen.The "layout set mode" should be "exclusive".

    In the admin screen there should be links in the top part for creating new news items. The users are not allowed to create new news. In your case select the layout as NewsExplorer to allow all to create news.

    In the Elearing of KM (Intermediate) you can have a look at "XML Forms" eclass.

      Hi Geogi,

      thanks very much for your assistance on this - I really appreciate the time and effort that you have put in trying to assist me here.

      I read back over my notes on the approval process, and I now don't believe that it is possible to set up the approval process as I want to.

      As described above, I wanted everyone to be able to create a document, but then have this document visible to the author and the approver.

      Unfortunately, in order to allow anyone to create a document, they must all have read/write access to the directory.

      As soon as you have read/write access to the directory, you belong to the authors group, which can automatically see any document which is awaiting approval.

      In order not to see the document, you need to have only read access to a directory.

      So as a result, I don't think that it is possible to achieve what I was hoping to achieve.

      Thank you again for the input you have provided - whilst it may not have solved this problem, it has certainly helped to increase my understanding of the system.

      Regards

      Richard
