I have done some research and it appears that In Private sessions can only be initiated by the user rather than called in a URL. Apparently this is to stop people misusing them. You can start the applications I.E.,,Chrome etc. in private browsing from a short cut not a url.
So theoretically, could I have the button run an external program and feed it the heat URL? I have NOT used the Run Program QA yet.
"C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" -private
You cannot use the run a program function, that will only run server side not client side. the other option is to call the program from a client side url file:// but that will trigger security alerts in the browser for security protection so not a nice solution.
What changed does the editor need to make or is it just complete the task. If it is just completing the task then they don’t need edit rights we can provide actio just to update the task.
Ah. ok. Now I understand.
Our IT teams are required to review new articles for tech details if they are the related CI owners. For this we send them a task once an article is submitted. Once their tech review task is completed a new task is made for the editing team. Our editing team is Service Desk personnel trained to ensure consistent content, layout, formatting, etc..
The article editing layout is only available to the IT Knowledge Editor role. We had hoped for an easy way to trigger it out to its own window. All other roles see the view layout.
Since the role change in one browser window affects the others I wanted to explore Private browsing. (The same way I stay administrator and then open a Private window to test out other role changes.)
We stepped away from using an Approval board since the approvers needed to review the article itself. We did not want random "approved" replies via email without someone actually looking at it.
On the opposite end, we have an Article Creation Guideline document I want to open in a specific "IT User" role. If you are trying to create an article in "IT Knowledge Editor" role and need the guideline doc it too opens in the Edit Layout making it hard to read. Here I want to force it open in the IT User role but that role change would lock out my prior Editor role rights. A Private session would avoid this.
For this situation I've given the Editor role access to a "preview" tab so they can see the article as intended.
Launching the Private window was the one option I could think of to segregate the role sessions. We are certainly open to other suggestions.
The only thing I can think of is to have as you say another tab or area which appears only for users in a specific team. You can test the teams a current user is assigned to and make a tab or workspace available just for those in the editors team (you cant do this for roles) CurrentUserTeamNames()
I use things similar to this when hiding debugging information so will have a hidden tab which only appears for me on records so I can check workflow processing steps etc.
We ended up reworking our entire approach. Switching roles was too confusing for people. We let all of IT create articles so it just made sens to drop it into the standard USER role and make an editing form that was not the first Child tab in their list.
In the end simple was best. As always, your creative suggestions are most helpful!
