What is it?



The Required Read/View component allows users to view the content that has Required Read/View set up against it.  Clicking on the 'View All' button from within the component takes users to the My Read/ View List page where they can see the list of all items pending confirmation after reading and/or viewing, as well as the ones confirmed having read/viewed. Here the users with the security to assign Must Read can also see the list of all items assigned by them for other users to read/view.




When do I use it?


By including the Must Read component within site layouts, your users are able to have an instant access to the number of files and docs, etc., that needs their attention and/or action. The component will display different data for different users, depending upon their access, hence it's highly customized and effective.
