Assignment Desk
Question: Use of Plugin for a Writing Group (2 posts)

    I am perhaps thinking TOO far outside of the box here, but I would really like to use this plugin to faciliate collaborative story reviews for members of my writing group.

    Basically, one of the things we do in my group is post stories / segments / chapters for other group members to review / comment on. I really like the idea that this plugin could be used to facilitate this w/ multiple editors / readers.

    I have a couple of questions:
    1. Is this a good use of your plugin? Or am I asking trying to fit a square peg in a round hole?

    2. Is there an "assign all" option where everyone in the group (or where X roles) could be assigned so that a writer could just let everyone contribute (or choose a group, like "members" versus "everyone")?

    3. Can a writer assign readers /reviewers or would I have to make everyone editors?

    4. Do responses / edits count as "comments" for the purposes of making them "rate-able?" I would like for people to be able to rate reviews / edits.

    5. Are there any other features of your plugin that might be useful? I am just getting started w/ both WordPress and this site, so any suggestions would be most welcome. =)

    Hey Laura,
    First off, thanks for considering Assignment Desk! We'd love to have you as a user. It sounds like you could do most of what you want to do with how WordPress works out of the box.

    Assignment Desk is really designed to manage content pre-publication. For instance, writers can submit story ideas, an editor can approve the story idea, and other community members can then vote on which stories should come to fruition. If the audience for your stories/segments/chapters are the same people who are doing the reviewing, I might recommend just having the writers create and publish blog posts for their reviews. The other community members would comment on those reviews as they would do with a blog post found elsewhere on the interwebs.

    Does that make sense for your needs? If not, feel free to clarify more and I'll try to do my best to answer.
