Allow organizations to cross publish (circulate) without having permission to edit

In large organizations there are many individuals in each newsroom responsible for curating content. A lot of this content is from other newsrooms in the organization. If newsroom A wants a story from newsroom B, we need a way for users in A to add their website and section without:

1. Disrupting work being done in the story by newsroom A.
2. Without having to republish the story since newsroom B may be unaware of changes to the story that are not yet ready to go live.
3. Newsroom B needing any type of editing rights to newsroom A. When this is the case we see many users accidentally editing another market's content, confusing it for theirs.

    I also want to make sure that being able to remove my website from a story is addressed with this. The above description calls out adding a website/section, but there could be examples where newsroom A might want to remove or just edit their website/section(s) from a story that newsroom B has published to them. Often newsroom A wants to add additional sections so that it will flow into specific feeds or specific places on the website.

    Hi Sara

    Thanks for that update.

    The work that is currently under way will allow editors from sites B-Z to add their sites and sections to a document WITHOUT obtaining a lock on the story or needing story edit or publish permissions.

    Work to allow multiple story locks in parallel, to support modifying story tags, will be considered separately.

    Also important is the ability for newsroom A to be able to add metadata, specifically "story tag" without disrupting  and locking the content from newsroom B.


    And, let's not forget that there are also newsrooms C-Z as well that may need to add their website, section and story tag to content as well.
