We have some documents in Alfresco that require an read confirmation from users. We want to make sure that users are reading the documents and confirm that they take knowledge about it. Managers need to see which user confirmed which document.
Is there a possibility in Alfresco to implement such an function? Has anybody something similar?
One way to accomplish this requirement would be to use a digital signature service - there are several out there that integrate with Alfresco. That would require users to acknowledge that they had read the document. This obviously requires a third party service and some code adding to Alfresco.
Another way could be to use workflow and assign tasks such as Review - that might be sufficient.
A third option could be via the Alfresco audit service (disabled by default). For more information please read this overview.
That said, none of these approaches will actually prove that a user has actually read your document!
