Implement ability to promote from review into production
Last modified: 2013-08-15 14:43:00 PDT
Currently the file selector in the "send to production" allows for the selection of files to be made available to the Author, not files to be included in production; to bring in existing files, it's necessary to click the upload/select action in the production grid and select files there, which feels like backtracking.
Consider popping up a second modal after the author is notified that allows files to be selected? Perhaps a wizard to guide through both steps?
(Alec will ask John about the potential for using the same file selection for both purposes, i.e. choosing what's shown to the author and promoting those to production.)
Clicking on "Accept Submission" calls up a modal that includes a Notify Author email and a Send Files to Editing table, listing the submission file.
We have been talking about having the files checked off as selected by default, but it strikes me that the more direct way of doing this is to work with the assumption that they are all going forward and use the checkboxes only for "Do not send" which would be the title for the column of checkboxes. I realize that we may be using already checked-to-include by default elsewhere but I ask that we consider using this check-to-exclude approach as more direct.
John, I assume authors also be allowed to see the files that were checked, in addition to those files moving into Production?
I'd find "check to exclude" very counter-intuitive.
Authors should have access through their access to the Review and Editing stages to the files. On reflection, I do not think that they need to be notified of which files are forwarded.
If we present to editors a table in the Accept Submission modal (which includes Notify Author) that includes all submission files and is entitled...
Select Files to Send to Editing
[ ] File1
[ ] File2
[ ] File3
And it would not close if no files are selected, would it be more intuitive?
