ReadConfirmation asks for confirmation that a page has been read by users who have a page assignment for that page.

When the feature is enabled for a namespace through the NamespaceManager, users who are assigned to a page see a checkbox at the top of the page. By clicking the checkbox, they confirm that the page has been read.

Page approval and read confirmation

If a namespace has the feature Approval activated at the same time, the read confirmation is triggered if a new draft page has been created. This can be changed server-side using LocalSettings.php. If a read confirmation should be triggered after the page has been approved and not when the draft is created, the following setting needs to exist:

$GLOBALS['bsgReadConfirmationMechanism'] = "\\BlueSpice\\FlaggedRevsConnector\\ReadConfirmation\\Mechanism\\PageApproved::factory";
