Ideas for Arc XP

Allow write-ins for task assignees

Allow users to write in the name of whomever a task is assigned to in instances where the assignee does not have an Author Service profile. Example: Naming the freelance photographer assigned to a photo assignment task.

    Hi Emily,

    We are including this as part of our upgrades to the overall Task Experience. I would love to speak with you further about this idea as well as your other ideas.

    Please feel free to reach out to me through your account manager.

    Thanks!

    The task assignee needs to have access to Arc Publishing to be listed, but doesn't need to be in the author service.

    We'll consider allowing free text assignment in the future.
