Get a notification when a Composer file is first created


Please add the ability to get a notification when a story (Composer) file is created. As an editor, I want to get a notification when files are created for certain stories so I know that that those stories have been "budgeted" in Websked. As an editor, I need to know when reporters on my team have started Composer files for their stories, so I can then pitch them to the appropriate platforms and publications

Like other story-related notifications, users should be able to limit these to certain authors.

    Hi all, and thank you for your feedback on this -- I realize it's been a long time coming.

    We are considering how we might address this within a larger initiative. I'm afraid it may be a bit longer before we have a solution. Nevertheless, I appreciate the feedback. Please feel free to reach out to me directly with any question.

    This could be indeed interesting for the Head of section to know when a reporter created a story.

    Hi Ian,

    We don't have anything on the near or medium term roadmap to address this, but it's good to know it is still of keen interest as we look to improve notifications over time.

    This was submitted almost a year ago. Any update on this other than future consideration? Thanks!
