Send Review via Email

The Email Review authoring feature allows contributors to share pages with non-contributors. If your site is set up for email in CommonSpot, you can email a page, both current and pending, to individual CommonSpot users, groups of users, or specified email lists as an HTML attachment. See the Administrator's Reference for more information.
