How To Add A Co-Editor To Your Family Cookbook Project

With the Publishing System, we recommend that only one person serve as Editor – “too many cooks spoil the soup” so to speak.  You really need one person with full control or you cannot keep up with what might have been changed.

That said, you have the ability to promote any contributor to the level of Co-Editor.  To do so, go to Communication Center and click on their name in the list.  Check the box next to their user name and update.  The next time they login they will have access to:

  • Editor Activities Menu with all tools
  • Add/Edit any recipe to help with cookbook editing
  • Communication Center – they can promote/demote users as Co-Editors

We highly recommend allowing only trusted helpers serving as co-editor.

Here is a quick tutorial video that shows you how:
