by Derek_Kang on ‎01-13-2012 11:07 PM (699 Views)


Before working on your OpenScript code, check out whether a similar code exists. If you do not find out a code that meets your needs, then you are ready to develop one and share with others.

Contribution Process

These are the contribution process from script creation through script approval and publishing as follows:

  • Click on the "Create a script" button/link in the Action box on the right hand side within the Contribute space.

  • Check your publish status, by going to "My Stuff" and then click on "Documents/Wikis" on the pull down menu.
