It is a good Thread Lindy. Thanks for starting it. I'll work on your other requests for Assignments this week.
In the meantime, can you file a support ticket at support.townnews.com for us to get your budget view working?
Kevin: And update on your three bullet points:
Editing the Slug is on the roadmap. Specifically you asked for it to be able to change the asset slug in the process.
Assignment date does sort. What is the problem?
I will add a development ticket on the editor not showing up.
Lindy: The original intention for the Media Asset Assignment was indeed for any type of non-article assignment. Yes it is currently geared towards photos, but if you will use it for other things I'll put in a request to add the extra features for other asset types.
It has been difficult getting good feature requests for the Assignment Tool. We added it to BLOX Total CMS at the request of a client who ended up not using it. So it languished. We have been getting some good requests from Kevin and his crew in Galveston, TX and it is getting better in development waves. When it comes to the Assignment Tool, please keep sending feature requests. The best way, however, is through TownNews' CRM support ticket system. You can reach that at support.townnews.com.
The Appliance OS 2.11 version added the ability to search for assignments via slugs. And it corrected a problem with the due date in the Assignment e-mails.
Appliance OS 2.12 doesn't have any Assignment related items, but Appliance OS 2.13 will fix a bug with sorting by assigned to and asset type. More will come after that.
