Enables ad-hoc created groups to share resource creator rights to a resource. Does not currently integrate with XF2.2 "Resource Teams"
  • Admin defined list of what permissions can be shared from the resource creator (some permissions require "masking" where the collaborator has them taken away if they are not in the right group)
  • End-user create groups with different permission sets.
  • Edit resource updates
  • Manage tags in resource
  • Implements edit history for resource updates & description
  • Support for mostly arbitrary permission sharing from the resource creator to collaborators.
    • Requires opt-in code changes to support custom permission implementations.
  • Track edit history for resource descriptions & resource updates
  • Works with XF2 Content Ratings add-on
  • Works with Content Title Edit History add-on
Configuration notes
This is a complex add-on, and sharing permissions may require adjusting of the "masked" permission list, and in some cases may require additional integration work.

You must configure permissions for user groups to use this add-on!

Latest reviews

A useful addition when sales are conducted by 2 people or more or are developing something in a joint project and it is very convenient to inform and manage the resource
Excellent add-on and definitely recommend for any forums that requires some threads to have multiple editors.
It is very lightweight yet offers a lot of features and permissions.

Very satisfied with the support provided by Xon. It shows that Xon really cares about delivering the best. Communication was great, instant replies and detailed messages. Not only did Xon provide support for the issue I had but also for general information about the forums and other add-ons (from other content owners) that would help me out.

Communities are about sharing and collaboration, so I see this as an essential add-on. At the very least, edit history should be in core. Thank you Xon for taking on this project, saving us from clunky wiki software!
