Deploying Pages

I have a set of docs (2 docs split into a back-end and front-end). I share the front-end doc with my users. The users are editors, so they can add rows to the tables.

I want the front-end doc users to have Interact only permissions, but I keep needing to change the permissions to “full-control” so I can do development on the front-end.

Is there any way I can make edits to the front-end while keeping the users interact only?

Alternatively, is there any way to “deploy” new pages? I’ve thought about creating new hidden “development” pages, and then unhiding them and deleting the old pages as way to deploy new functionality, but I’m not sure if this is the best method.

Hello!

If you’re the doc maker, you can temporarily unlock any individual page just for you to make edits, without changing the permission settings that you’ve already configured for the editors.

You can do so by clicking the “lock” icon that is on the top right side of the user interface. This “unlocks” the page just for you to “full-control” permissions until you re-lock or refresh the browser tab.

As for the second question about “deploying” pages, I don’t know a better method than what you’ve described, but I’ve never had to deal with that use-case (I usually just add functionality directly in the pages that are being used, without any type of version control) so I can’t help you with that, sorry.

I didn’t know about the unlocking feature. Thank you!

This is about the best that I have seen as well.
