[Plugin: Editorial Calendar] two suggestions: change author // email reminder

  • Hi,

    this really a great plugin and I’ll try to use it on our multiauthor magazin (ca. ten authors). Two thinsg that would make live more easy:

    – Could you add an email reminder if the status is draft, maybe three days before the publishing date?

    – Could it be possible to add and change the author via the quickedit functon?

    Best wishes from Germany

    Hi Daniel,

    Thank you for using the Editorial Calendar and a big thank you for the feedback. We’re working on a big feature for handling the drafts in the calendar. It should be available in the next release and will really help multi-author blogs like yours handle drafts. Hopefully that will help with the need for email reminders.

    Adding the author to the quick edit screen would be nice, but we’re always trying to balance extra functionality with keeping it simple. We’ll try to figure out a way to add this in the future.

    Thanks,
    Zack

    Hi Zack,

    thanks for the reply. In my environment it is very useful, if I could set dates for my authors. This would be much easier, if I could do this in Quickeditmode but it it already works now using the “edit-button” after adding.

    I’m looking forward to the new version and keep on the good work. Thanks a lot!

    Hi Zack,

    another feature that could be useful for multiauthors is to make it possible to highlight special dates.

    For example the first of every month is reserved for our “album of the month”. The more the 4th, 7th, 10th, … are reserved for reviews… or the second saturday of every month is for our ezine, but not for special authors. If they want to write a review they should pick one of these dates.

    Best wishes

    This is a great plugin – and I too would like to vote for adding in selecting the author. Perhaps an author dropdown field could be hidden by default, but enabled by a plugin setting.

    For those interested in the possibility to change the author of a post from the quick-edit pan, I posted a patch allowing that here:
