Dear members, due to maintenance work, the RWS Community will be down on Saturday, 02.07.2022, from 06:00 AM CET to 12:00 PM CET. We thank you for your time and understanding throughout the process.

This place is where you can suggest, discuss, and vote on ideas. If you want to create an idea for an other related product choose the appropriate group on this page.

When you select to create a new idea, there are a few things you can do to ensure RWS Development and other community participants understand the idea. See here for Idea best practices.

  • Reversing language directions for server TMs

    Users quite often work with AnyTM for file based resources but when they migrate to GroupShare the feature is unsupported as result the functionality of the translation system is decreased from translator's point of view.
  • Changing the number of phases and their names in GroupShare

    • Under Community Review on

    This idea is simple. There should be a chance to create a custom sequence of phases in GroupShare. For example, instead of the usual 4 phases, I might need 8 or 9 phases of work for a given project. Also, customization of phase names is a must.
  • Mark files as "deleted" in GroupShare

    • Under Community Review on
    • 1 Comment
    For obvious reasons, files already published on GroupShare cannot be deleted (you would only delete the files on the server, not on the clients, and you don't know which client has it already in his project list). It would be great to have the possibility...
  • Ability to force upLIFT alignment for server-based TM

    • Under Community Review on
    • 0 Comments
    In GroupShare 2017 SR1, the current implementation of upLIFT alignment for server-based TMs is such that a TM is only flagged as a candidate for alignment if certain criteria are met, according to a builtin algorithm. This would be fine in an ideal...

    It is currently not fully possible to adapt the email templates that Project Server sends to users. It is not possible to customize the email subject, only the body. See also: https://community.sdl.com/developers-more/developers/language-developers/f...
  • Read-only GroupShare TMs and enable update restrictions

    • Under Community Review on
    • 3 Comments
    There are several reasons to make TMs read-only or to restrict modifications: It is very easy to delete an entire GS TM from within Studio. Just a right-click... and except for a warning, poof, it's gone. Not good, because accidents happen. We...
  • GroupShare Load/Traffic check

    • Under Community Review on
    • 0 Comments
    In a scenario with many users connecting at the same time GroupShare may start to work slower than usual. It would be great to actually track the load balance in real-time, a bit similar to what Microsoft does with regard their Exchange Online or Azure...
  • "Send user details" option when creating a new user

    • Under Community Review on
    • 0 Comments
    When creating new users maybe the longest step is about copypasting all the data fields into a proper email and making such message read nice in terms of formatting and so. I I'm wondering if a dedicated button could be added to the user creation wizard...
  • Predefine the user name saved in TM metadata (created by, used by, changed by)

    • Under Community Review on
    • 0 Comments
    Hi all, in server-based TMs it should be possible to override any user settings so that user information is stored in TM meta data fields with predefined values (which the user should not be able to change). Example: You assign the external user...

    Give admins an option to force users to change their GS user account password every X days. Jack
