Read and Understood

Records acknowledgements that specific users have read specific postings.

Read-and-Understood is a solution to the "I didn't get the memo" problem.

The Read and Understood (RnU) WordPress plugin offers readers the opportunity to record an acknowledgement that they have read a specific posting.

You can visit us at: http://mantos.com

One common use of RnU is by employers to record that employees have read postings in a specific, private category such as 'internal' which may only be seen by authorized, logged-in users. By doing so, the employee may assume responsibility for understanding the content and following any instructions, procedures, or policies contained in it.

These acknowledgements may then be accessed by administrators via a CSV file containing records created in a given date range. The records are exported using an Export button on the plugin's setting page. In addition to exportation, the records are accessible through any technique used to access a typical MySql database such as PHPadmin, linked tables, or custom programming.

The acknowledgements may also be purged (deleted) using the PURGE button also found on the plugin's setting page.

Optionally, the plugin may be configured to accept acknowledgements from users who are not logged-in. In that case, the user may enter any username desired provided that it meets an administrator specified format as defined by a regular expression. The default format for such usernames, if allowed, is 1-10 capital letters.

An Export file contains the following headers:

RNU_USERNAME .............. The WP username of the logged in reader, or the one entered if allowed
post_title ................ The WP title of the posting acknowledged id_RNU_ACKNOWLEDGMENT ..... A unique number identifying the acknowledgement record RNU_USER_ID ............... The userid of the logged-in WP user (or 0 if not logged-in) RNU_POST_ID ............... The post id of the posting acknowledged RNU_ACK_DATETIME .......... The date and time the posting was acknowledged by the user
