  • Read-only GroupShare TMs and enable update restrictions

    • Under Community Review on 10 Jul 2017
    There are several reasons to make TMs read-only or to restrict modifications: It is very easy to delete an entire GS TM from within Studio. Just a right-click... and except for a warning, poof, it's gone. Not good, because accidents happen. We...

  • Message board feature to post a message/note/information for all stakeholders in the GroupShare project

    • Under Community Review on 12 Dec 2018
    If there are many translators working for a single GroupShare project, I think this feature will help to communicate all the translators efficiently. It might be better if there is a option to select translators to send a message, attachment feature...

  • Make Field Templates exportable

    • Under Community Review on 12 May 2017
    When managing a large number of TMs, including file-based ones, we find that it is difficult to maintain the same field names and values across language pairs or across customer-specific TMs. In order to be consistent and to create templates "from scratch...

  • Create privilege "can read TM user ids" and implement a masking function "on the fly" for Tm queries during translation

    • Under Community Review on 20 May 2019
    • 1 Comment
    During the normal work Groupshare registers the creation, modification and last use User ID for each Translation Unit. The problem is any translator can actually read other translators' userids while they translate. User ids often reveal names of...

  • Change phases of multiple files including reference files

    • Under Community Review on 17 Oct 2017
    • 1 Comment
    When multiple translatable files are selected, their phases can be changed at once. But if there is any reference files in the selection, phases cannot be changed. It should allow to change the phases of the translatable files even if there is any...

  • Project notifications for "watchers"

    • Under Community Review on 17 Jul 2017
    It would be really useful if you could set a project "watcher" user in the planning of a project. This user(s) is notified about a phase change or about the completion of a project. There is a strong use case for at least the last option, namely "notify...

  • Terminology approval / discussion on the fly

    • Under Community Review on 6 Mar 2017

    Assuming each phase of the GroupShare project is defined and both translator and a reviewer are assigned, the following scenario could make sense: - a translator find a very unclear term in the document, which needs to be discussed with the reviewer...

  • GroupShare Load/Traffic check

    • Under Community Review on 30 Mar 2017
    In a scenario with many users connecting at the same time GroupShare may start to work slower than usual. It would be great to actually track the load balance in real-time, a bit similar to what Microsoft does with regard their Exchange Online or Azure...

  • Improve creation of projects from GroupShare Web client

    • Under Community Review on 15 May 2018
    Today, to create a project from GroupShare, you have to load your project template to the GroupShare server and create your project. I've noticed two major issues with this: If your Studio project template has language pairs with more than one...
