Feature Request: Add Publications within batch edit functions

Rod Guajardo 1 week ago in BLOX Total CMS 0

Would be great to be able to assign multiple assets to a publication/page (Publications) through the batch edit function. 


Oftentimes reporters and editors put assets into the system before a dummy is dropped and they know exactly what page an asset should be assigned to. This leaves folks having to open up each individual asset later in the day and assigning a page number to that asset if we want designers to take advantage of the budget tool within InDesign asset manager. 


Example: Opinion page items are put in earlier in the day when possible. This page isn't always in the same position each day, so the editor budgets every asset for the general publication and section but isn't able to assign a page number. Once dummy is dropped and we know the page, each asset (often 10 or more) has to be opened up and assigned a page number. 


If there was a way to assign publications/sections/page numbers to multiple assets at the same time that would be a great timesaver for reporters and editors alike, while also allowing designers to keep using the handy budget tool within ID.
