Support » Plugin: Oasis Workflow » Once claimed, change post author

  • This is probably a stupid question, but I can’t figure it out.

    I have a simple workflow.

    Pitch >> Assign >> Review >> Publish

    Ideas get pitched and approved by the admin, then it is available for all writers to claim if they want to write them. Then proofread and eventually published.

    How do I change the post author when someone claims to an assignment?

    If Peter claims one of the assignments, it still has my name attached to it as I was the one who pitched it.

    I hope I’ve made my point clearly, if not let me know

    Hi Forbez,

    There isn’t a way to change the post author on “Claim”. In other words, the Claim process doesn’t update the post author. It simply assigns the task to the user who claimed and deletes the task from other users’ inbox.

    Since it’s action is task specific it can be applied on “publish” step as well.

    In order to achieve what you are looking for,
    One option is to add a hook in class-ow-process-flow.php – claim_process() function, so that the hook can be implemented and additional actions, like updating author, can be done in that hook.

    Any other ideas?

    Yeah, I’ll try something like that. I’ll probably end up just including it in the proof stage.

    Perhaps a feature to add in the future. A tick box for one of the processes. If they reach this stage, you can change the author tickbox. Including changing the post author automatically to one’s self.

    Thanks anyways!
