Contributor permissions and updating
Contributors cannot be added or removed, even if they are added/removed on the project.
Only contributors with admin or write permissions on the original registration can edit the updatable draft’s contents. Check out Contributor Permissions and Updating to learn about permissions their associated actions on updating.
The updatable draft is prepopulated with the registration’s previous responses. Go to the questions that have the content you need to update and simply edit the text.
We recommend contributors enter the justification for their edits in the Justification tab as they make their updates.
Accessing a draft update
You can access your update draft several ways including email, project, their “My Registrations” page, or directly from the registration overview page.
From an email
Open the email the system sent you stating that one of the Admins initiated an update
Click the link telling you to “open it directly”.
From a project
Open your project.
Click the “Registrations” tab.
Make sure you are on the “Registrations” section.
Click the “View Changes” button located on the bottom of the registration card you want to update.
Note: You will only see “View Changes” for the registrations you are an Admin Collaborator on.
Open your My Registration’s page.
Make sure you are on the “Submitted” section.
Click the “Review Changes” button located on the bottom of the registration card you want to update. You will only see “Review Changes” for the registrations you are an Admin Collaborator on.
Saving updates to return to them later
Updates are saved automatically as you type. You can check when the system last saves your work by looking at the right pane.
The Justification tab
The Justification tab is where contributors explain why the updates are needed. Explanations are entered in a required text box field. This box must have information for the update to be submitted
Contributors are encouraged to be thorough and transparent in their explanations. In other words, write it to retrigger your own memory if you were to look back at this 3 years later.
Once changes are submitted, they will go to the Admins for review and approval.
