Accept Request

Click on the Accept button to accept the request. Depending on what type of content is being imported you will be given the option or organize the content. For example, if you are importing an article you can select the manual and chapter to place it in.

When you accept a copy request for a site or a manual, ScreenSteps will update internal knowledge base links for you. What this means is that any links between articles or chapters within the site or manual will be updated to point to the new articles, chapters, and manuals in the new copy.

Important: If you are accepting a copy request for a manual then knowledge base links that point to articles, chapters, or manuals outside of the manual will not be updated.


All content that you import will be Unpublished.

Congratulations, you are done!
