I was wondering if this featured requested on this support topic "http://wordpress.org/support/topic/plugin-edit-flow-assignment-of-writers" was in the works?
I would like to be able to allow contributors to choose assignments from post's that are mark as custom status "available story" and the contributors could claim them.
Currently, if an editor takes a pitch post and changes the status to my custom status "available story", they are assigned and so is the pitch author user, so no other contributors are able to claim that article.
Maybe a "Claim this Article" button? or a way to remove users from the post when status changes to "available story"?
Please let me know I would love to help implement this.
And thanks so much for this great plugin, very impressive!!!
