Automatic glossary updates for non-admin users
In large installations, it's quite common to have a small set of users with the ability to edit templates and another set that will have only read-only access mode.
Once you have set up your groups of admin and read-only users, you can set PhraseExpander to ensure that read-only users will always get the latest version, while admins will validate the changes from other admins before accepting.
How to set up automatic updates for read-only users
Edit the PhraseExpander static configuration file PhraseExpander.exe.config, and ensure it contains the AutoupdateLinked statement as shown below. By setting it to readonly, it forces the update for read-only users only.
Admin users will manage updates manually and will retain full control of which changes to accept or reject.
<?xml version="1.0"?> <configuration> <appSettings> <add key="AutoupdateLinked" value="readonly"/> </appSettings> </configuration>
The file must be copied into the installation folder of each machine (or put in a single place where the application is located, if you are using Citrix or Terminal Services).
If there are pending remote changes, they are applied when the application window is minimized.
