Ideas for Arc XP

Pre populate author field based on logged user

Hi team,

We would like that the author field in Composer could be pre populated with the current user's author, so users won't have to press the "Add me" button every time they write a Story.

    In our newsroom, most stories are kicked off in Composer by an assigning editor, and this would not be a benefit, but I can see how it might help other newsrooms who have reporters start their own files. Perhaps it should be configurable?
