Just adding one more to the pile of people who want explicit post assignments; authors/writers/editors.
Basically any user from any group would be assigned and be notified of the assignment explicitly.
By explicit I mean that Assignments is a sub-section of the plugin and has it's own widget on the post page. The idea is that an Assignments widget would make notifications less of a catch-all and an editor can see the people supposed to be working on a post and make any changes as needed. Notifications would be be more truly just for notifications and the assignments would enable a more direct communication with writers and editors. It also would answer the questions a busy writer might have when logging in to a site's dashboard:
- Am I assigned anything?
- What are my assignments?
- When are they due?
This would be huge for my current client and I imagine huge for any groups working on a site where they don't share a physical office.
Thanks for a great plugin and for all the hard work everybody has done to make this so powerful and helpful. Major life change for my clients, who can't stop raving about the usefulness of this plugin.
