Learn about the different types of assignments in Paligo.

Use assignments to collaborate with others and manage your projects and workflow. There are several types of assignments, each with a different purpose. They are called Review, Contribution, Translation, and Translation Review.

Review Assignment

Contribution Assignment

The actions that are available to the assignee vary, depending on the User Types that are assigned to their user account, see Create Assignments.

  • Users with an Author license can create and edit content in Paligo's main Editor, but also have access to all views in Contributor Editor.

  • Users with a Contributor license can only access the Contributor Editor.

    Depending on how the contribution assignment is set up, they can either create and edit content or be limited to making suggestions only. There are editing features but does not include the more advanced authoring features of the full Paligo editor, such as content reuse. You can create two types of contribution assignments, see Assignment Types.


    If a contribution assignment is set up for suggestions only, it has this symbol Suggest mode icon. It is a lightbulb..
