Edit Mode

In Edit Mode, contributors can see published content, plus any changes that they or anyone else has in a Work in Progress or Pending Approval state. 

This mode enables more collaborative authoring.  Content in a Work in Progress state for one author can be viewed and edited by another author.  CommonSpot displays status.

Additionally, if content is Work in Progress or Pending Approval by another user, in Edit Mode with the proper permissions, the current user can “take ownership” of the changes.  This feature is helpful for sharing the content contribution between multiple users.
