Annotation issues


#1

Hi,


I’m using your newly added Drupal module: https://www.drupal.org/project/groupdocs_annotation, but I can’t seem to make it work the way I need.

After a bit of research I managed to make it work as a viewer, but the annotation bar doesn’t show up. Also, is it possible to assign different names for each user that annotates a file?

Thank you!

Hello ,

Thank you for using GroupDocs.Annotation.

We have reproduced your issue and have fixed our plugin . You can download it from here , also please use "jquery_update" library with 2.3 version for this plugin .

At this moment our plugin can't add a collaborator to your document, but you can use the GroupDocs Dashboard for it, as shown on the screenshot . If you need the functionality of adding collaborators , then you can change plugin code and add such feature. You can check our sample for how to do it here .

If you will have more questions please feel free to contact us.

Best regards

Thank you, it worked great. I have some questions.


We would like to have the users name instead of Anonymous for every annotation. I think that every person must have an account on groupdocs in order to do so(am i right?)

Are those accounts free or do we have to pay for each one of them?

Also, is there a way to make an user a collaborator automatically without adding it to every doc he views?

Isn’t there a way that we can add names based on the userid that makes the annotation?

Thank you!

Hello,

Thanks for your inquiry.

In your case you can create new users to your account and add them as collaborator to the document . As it works we shown you in our previous answer on the our PHP sample here. Please check it and you will find that when you create a new user for your account you can get a userGuid of this user and then you should add it to the embeded URL as "?uid=userGuid". Full url should be "https://apps.groupdocs.com/document-annotation2/embed/file_guid?uid=userguid&signature=".

If you will create users in your account, then it is free. But if you use the free account, then you can create only two users for testing. For our paid plans this functionality hasn't limits.

No you can't add automatically a collaborator to document , only programmatically or manually.

If you will have more questions please feel free to contact us.
