Editing the Verification Timeline and Verifier

Roles: Authors


It's important to ensure that Cards are being verified by subject-matter experts and in a timely fashion. Thus, verifiers and verification timelines for Cards should be updated to reflect any personnel changes on your team, such as promotions or transfers. You can edit the verification timeline and verifier on individual or muliple Cards using Card Manager.

How to Change the Verification Timeline and/or Verifier

On the Card:

  1. Open the card you wish to edit, and click the trust status— this is the symbol in the top lefthand corner of a Card that indicates whether a Card is verified, stale, or needs verification.
  2. Select 'Verifier is' and choose a new team member or Group, or 'Needs verification every' and choose a different timeline. The new subject matter expert or Group of experts should be the users on your team with the best knowledge of the topic. The timeline should represent the frequency at which the content needs to be updated.
  • If you change the verifier of a Card, the trust indicator will show that the Card needs verification until the newly designated Author or Group verifies it.
  • The verifier, whether it is an individual or group of experts, must have Author permissions in the Collection that the Card is in.

In Card Manager:

  • The Card Manager is especially helpful when adjusting the verification requirements of someone's Cards who's left the team or been reassigned.
  1. Navigate to the web app (app.getguru.com) and select 'Card Manager' from the left navigation bar.
  2. Filter by one or more attributes on the Card to find the Cards you'd like to adjust and select the desired Cards by clicking in the checkboxes located to the left of each Card title.
    • If you'd like to change the verifier of these cards, click the 'Change Verifier' icon in the top bar:
    • If you'd like to change the verification frequency, click the 'Change Interval' icon:
  3. Select the new verifier or verification timeline and press 'Save'.
  • The verifier, whether it is an individual or group of experts, must have Author permissions in the Collection that the Card is in.
