    What we want to do is allow users to upload a document, have someone else download the document and make changes, then upload the document for further comment/collaboration. If anyone could point us at examples of how to do this we'd really appreciate it.

    Hello Dale,

    There is a way to accomplish this task, but the problem will come with tracking changes between files. You could try creating a module (or control) that is similar to files section in Sitefinity back end.  You could create directories for the different departments. An user will upload documents to a given directory, someone else will review them and then upload the files again with comments. You can append the date to the title so that everyone will know when the document has been changed and uploaded. You could add a metafield as well, if you use the approach with custom module inheriting from Generic Content. In this field, the users will summarize the changes they made to the document.

    This sounds good. Could you point me to an example of the 'files section in Sitefinity back end'? Also, do you have examples of adding a metafield by inheriting from GenericContent?

    Thanks for your help,
    Dale Jones

    Hello Dale,

    For the first question you could check the following files ~/Sitefinity/Admin/Files.aspx and the code behind. Could you elaborate a bit more about the second question?

    Best wishes,
