Can I limit the number of people who can add to my story?

I'm a teacher and my idea with using Protagonize would be to have my students collectively write a story.

For that I would them to be able to access and edit a story that I have begun. I would also like to be able to restrict editing rights to my students.

Are both of those things possible?

Thanks.

    Hi Glenn,

    You can do most of what you're asking using our groups feature.

    To your first question, you can restrict the access list by creating a Restricted Access group (or Private, depending on what you need) and inviting your students to it. When you submit a story to that group, only members of the group will be able to contribute to it.

    You can read more about how groups work here, in our FAQ:
    http://www.protagonize.com/help/faq/#...

    To your second question, currently only the original author of the chapter or page in question (in a collaborative work) can edit their own content. Your students would be able to edit their own content, but not the content of other students within the gruop.

    I'm currently working on adding the ability to set editing rights at the group level, so that the group's owner can specify which roles within the group are able to edit all content submitted to the group. This would only affect Restricted Access and Private groups, either way (it's definitely not something we'd want to allow for Public groups.)

    I'm not entirely sure if that's what you're after, but it's in the works if it is.

    Does that answer your question? If you still need a hand, feel free to email me -- help@protagonize.com.

    Cheers,

  • Thanks very much for the quick reply.

    That sounds fine even with respect to my second question: I would only want students to be able to add ('edit' was the wrong choice of word on my part) to a story, not to change anything done by someone else.

    From what you say above, adding would not be a problem.
