Display story lock status within WebSked

Our copy desk primarily uses Websked to search for and open stories that are ready for them to edit, but they've been complaining that there is no way to see, at a glance, that someone else has a story locked. There are clearly visible lock icons on the Composer story list, but nothing similar for Websked.

    Hi all,

    I understand how important a feature this is. We have this on the roadmap for a future improvement to the Stories tab.

    However, I'm looking to incorporate the lock status into the new Calendar view so you have a more direct way of determining the lock status within WebSked.

    As always, please reach out directly to me if you have any question.

    - Stuart

    A lock icon will be also very efficient for our workflow. Without it, this is a significant loss of time.

    Hi, I'm Thomas from Chosunilbo. This is a definitely required feature as well. Until the article gets opened in Composer, user in Websked will have no way to see whether articles is currently opened up by someone else. So to lessen the effort of having to open up an article in Composer, it makes more sense for Websked user to see the article lock status at a glance in the list.
