To enhance the workflow of the collaborative learning content creation, Easygenerator introduces the updated review system.
Review is a premium feature. Therefore, if you are using the Pro Plan, you should upgrade to the Team or Enterprise Plan in order to read comments from external reviewers. Pro Plan customers can explore the review functionality by adding the comments, but they cannot read them.
You can send a request to review your course to any external reviewers, even if they don’t have Easygenerator account. Just click the External Review icon, copy the review link and send it to your reviewers.
As the course author, you will get in-app notifications about new review comments, replies and mentions by @name.
The reviewers can submit general comments or comment on a particular course page or question.
In the Comments window, you will see all the comments added to the course by a reviewer, the reviewer's name, the date and time when the comment was made, the corresponding page title (unless it's a general comment), and the comment status (resolved / unresolved).
You can respond to comments, mark as resolved / unresolved and permanently delete them.
Replies to comments
As an author or co-author, you can also reply to comments from external reviewers.
Many of you are probably familiar with having threaded conversations in forums and on other platforms, so this feature comes in handy here, where, say, your team needs to discuss the feedback, add notes or exchange ideas to follow up on comments from your reviewers.
Replies let authors and co-authors respond directly to a comment from a reviewer, keeping the replies organized neatly in a single, threaded conversation right within Easygenerator, in the external review panel.
To make sure everyone who works on the course is up to speed, all replies are visible to all authors and co-authors (please note that replies are not visible to external reviewers).
In order to add a reply:
- Click the 'Reply' button at the bottom of the comment you want to reply to.
- Type your text.
- Click 'Post comment' or use the 'Ctrl+Enter' keyboard shortcut to submit your reply.
You can always delete your replies by clicking the 'Delete' button on the right side of your reply comments.
NOTE: If you edit the course during the review process, make sure to click on Update course to apply the changes and make them visible to external reviewers.
