Thank you for the great input here. I’m hoping to get to create a requirements log over the next few weeks and will make sure to drop these items in. I have picked out a few items and responded here:
Are we thinking of the possibility of a single output package including more than one language allowing the viewer to choose the language they want to go through?
This is a particular question we are still debating and I will open up a separate thread with a direct question to the community.
Plugins - Are we considering also plugins to extend the admin functionality?
Yes, we are. The ones that come to mind straight away are:
- Workflow steps
- Publishing processors (e.g. ‘publish to…’ integration points + output formats)
Plan stage - Can we consider plan templates to be possible, e.g. load a pre-prepared plan for reuse, to streamline/standardize planning?
By that, do you essentially mean bringing in a default document (which contains a plan in whatever format)? If not, please could you elaborate?
System help - how do we plan to address that?
Very good question and one we have to address. In order to create an easy to use tool, I think we will certainly need to produce context sensitive help and think abut how else we can really support the end users.
Thanks again - I hope this makes sense and starts answering some of the questions!
