Share your scripts with any user. When sharing scripts, specify a role for the people among whom the script is shared. The role determines the actions that a person can perform on the shared script.

Note:

You cannot share scripts in the offline mode.

Co-author

Co-authors can add, modify, or delete content from the script. However, they cannot delete the script itself. Co-authors can also, like reviewers, comment on the script.

Writer

This role, usually assigned to freelance writers, gives users access to only the documents that they’re working on. The writer role is assigned at a project level and is not available for individual document sharing operations. Users in this role have limited permissions and cannot perform the following actions:

  • See drafts of episodes authored by other writers

  • Create or view reports and schedules

  • See the lists assigned to the current project

  • Share, archive, or rename a project shared with them

  • See edit notifications for documents created by other users. In particular, users in this role will see the following notifications:

Reviewer

Reviewers cannot edit the content, but can add comments to the script.

Reader

Readers can only read the script but cannot view comments on the script, edit the script, or view the sharing information.

When a script has co-authors, only one of the authors can edit the script at a given time. The message in the status bar provides information on the author editing the script. The script is available to the other authors for editing only after the author editing the script saves it. Ensure that you save the script periodically so that other authors working on the script can work on the script too.

Note:

It takes a few seconds before the saved script is available to you for editing.

The status bar at the bottom of the application provides information on the status of the document. For example, if a reviewer X is editing the file, the information, “X is editing...” is displayed. The information disappears after the file is saved indicating that you can now edit the file.
