Enter special characters in Correspondence Management asset names

Sometimes, you may want to create Correspondence Management solution assets that contain special characters in their names. To do so, you must first define the list of special characters that you want to use in the tbxeditor-config XML file.

Follow these steps:

  1. Log in to the CRX console at http://<servername>:<port>/crx/de/index.jsp as an admin. The default admin credentials are admin/admin.
  2. Edit the content/cm/tbxeditor-config.xml file.
  3. Enter the special characters within the customAssetNameCharset tag. For example, to enable the French character set, enter the special characters À, Î , Ù, etc within the tag.
  4. Save the XML file.
  5. Now, to use any character in the Editor Properties dialog, enter Alt + <ASCII value of the special character>.

Project and team hierarchy in ICR

The campaign is the highest layer in the Integrated Content Review object hierarchy. The project is the second layer in the object hierarchy and the asset is the third layer. In fact, an asset is the basic unit of work — a work item — in the Integrated Content Review workflow.

Multiple levels of project nesting are supported.

Assets are actively managed through review cycles and drive all statuses in the campaign. For example, if an asset is late, the status of the parent campaign automatically becomes red. If all the constituent assets of a campaign are on time or green, the status of the campaign is green. Therefore, the status of a campaign is derived bottom-up instead of top-down.

Team member inheritance

Teams are built in a bottom-up fashion. Team members at any level in the campaign hierarchy include team members from lower levels. In other words, a campaign includes all members of a project. A project, in turn, includes all members of the assets within it.

Additionally, at any level in the campaign, a new member can be added directly to the team list. These new members have no responsibilities towards the campaign, but they receive notifications when statuses change. They also get access to the solution interface so that they can proactively see how the campaign is progressing.

For background information, you can refer to the Integrated Content Review Solution Guide.

Integrated Content Review solution user scenarios

The Integrated Content Review solution enables enterprises to streamline the planning, creation, review, approval, and archiving of assets used in digital marketing campaigns. The solution includes a solution interface and the Adobe Creative Suite Task List Extension for Integrated Content Review.

Using the solution interface, you can manage assets through creation, review, and approval workflows. The Creative Suite Task List extension lets creative professionals submit artifacts for review and receive comments and approval from right within Adobe Illustrator, InDesign, and Photoshop.
