Okay, I'm sure this one's a "no one's heard of it" kind of question, but I'm hoping that someone will either be able to point me in a related direction, or maybe some wonderful plugin developer would be willing to do this for me (I'd even pay something if I had to!)
I have a client who wants to have a check-in/check-out system for projects. Essentially, there are several people who may work on a project, and there needs to be a simple, easy way to track IF something's "checked out", and who last did it.
We're trying to figure out a way to do this with wordpress, thinking in terms of each project being a post, and having the users comment with their "check in/out" as well as any changes or updates, etc.
The problem comes in when my client wants to be able to export this all in a csv, or be able to do a "mass printing" of everything.
Here's basically what he sent me in an email... now if someone can help me figure out how to best accomplish this (heck, even if it's not using wordpress at this point, though I'd really prefer it) I'd really appreciate it...
We have a client that requires us to have a check-in checkout log for files that we place on our ftp site. Can we use the backend database on our server to have the fields:
no, rev ,des , user, checked status, date time, notes sorted by p/n, status
Then we would have a password protected url to enter data. Note that it is not required to link any files, just enter data. We would also want to have an export to csv capability. "
So.... any ideas? I'd really appreciate the help with this one!
